Sowing & Establishment

How to sow a new lawn

1 - Clear the area
Clear the area and remove any stones, weeds and other debris.

2 - Improve the soil
Cultivate the area to a depth of 15cm and remove any debris that is unearthed. For heavy clay soils, optionally, mix in sharp sand.

3 - Create a level seed bed
Level and rake over the area, then use a lawn roller to firm the soil.

4 - Allow the soil to settle
If possible, leave the soil for a week to allow a flush of weeds to come through; remove before sowing.

5 - Final ground preparation
Rake the area to loosen the top layer of soil. Apply our Pre-Seeding Lawn Fertiliser and rake into the soil.

6 - Buy your grass seed
Choose the right grass seed for your area and use our grass seed calculator to find out exactly how much grass seed you’ll need.

7 - Sowing the grass seed
Sprinkle the grass seed evenly across the area at the correct sowing rate. A spreader can be used for accurate application.

8 - Tread/roll the grass seeds in
Lightly roll or tread in the seeds to make contact with the soil. A harrow can be used for large areas.

9 - Water
If going through a period of drought, water the area every other evening for the first few weeks. If regular rainfall, manually watering will not be necessary.

10 - Mowing the lawn
Seed should germinate within approximately 14-21 days. Once it reaches 3-4 inches, you can mow the area by half an inch each cut.
