The Seeding Secret

There are many 'miracle' patch, repair and seed packs that claim to germinate and grow quicker than the next! The secret - a bit of fertiliser! So, for new lawns or patching sow your seed between April and September, have the sprinkler ready if it doesn't rain and feed your new seedlings with a STARTER feed to speed establishment and bring your new lawn into use sooner. For established lawns when overseeding use a seasonal fertiliser; the 'sandy soil' version is the best for this situation as it contains a broader range of nutrients compared to the 'clay soil' version thus looking after both your existing grass and the new seedlings better.

I have awarded 4 stars in anticipation that the product is as good as the service. This is because I have not used the grass seed at this moment in time

Grass seed showed within a couple of weeks and eliminated bald patches easily.

I needed to relawn an area of about 75sqm where a srhub bed had been. Lawnsmith Classic seemed to fit the bill so I placed the order. After preparing the ground as well as I could, I sowed the seed and hoped for the best. To my delight and amazement, it started to show in six days. I kept the area damp during a particularly hot spell by watering with an oscillating lawn sprinkler which I can thoroughly recommend.
