About this deal
After this process, there may be some bare patches amongst your lawn – this is the perfect time to overseed when the soil temperature is optimum and moisture is plentiful. We recommend overseeding with the same grass seed mixture as you have previously sown for a uniform appearance. The best time to sow our Quality Fine Lawn Seed is from March-October, when the soil temperature is around 8-10 degrees. Under optimum conditions, the seed should germinate within 14-21 days from sowing. Grass seed requires warmth, moisture and light to germinate. Typically, autumn will provide more favourable conditions for sowing in terms of moisture, however, if there is a period of drought, manually watering the seeds will be beneficial – this can be done every other evening to allow the moisture to soak into the soil.
Regularly fertilising your lawn will provide it with the nutrients it requires to stay lush and green all year-round.
If you find that weeds appear during establishment, these will generally be taken out by regular mowing once the lawn has reached around 3-4 inches in height. If the weeds are recurring, after 4 months, a Selective Weedkiller can be applied which will kill common lawn weeds, whilst leaving the existing grass unharmed. Moss can become problematic in areas that are particularly damp and shady. Moss Killer is best applied during March-October when moss is actively growing.
To achieve your best possible lawn, it is important to follow the guidelines on how to sow your grass seed.Under optimum conditions, the seed should germinate within approximately 14-21days. Once it reaches 3-4 inches, cut the lawn for the first time, gradually lowering the height with each subsequent cut as desired. Spread the grass seed evenly across the area at a minimum of 20g/sqm. A spreadercan be used for accurate application.
