Preparation and Usage
Seed mixture for amenity use Ideal for creating a new lawn and suitable for over-seeding or bare parches With Ryegrass EverGreen®' Multi Purpose lawn seed is ideal for creating a new lawn and is suitable for over-seeding or bare patches. Create a new lawn or fill in a bare patch Remove all weeds and stones and lightly turn the soil surface over. Level and firm by treading the soil. Shake the box to remix the seeds. Apply one handful per square metre (approximately 30g). Create a criss-cross pattern by sowing half the seed from left to right and the rest from top to bottom. Gently rake in and tread the seeds into the soil. Unless it rains, soak with a fine spray and keep soil moist for the next few weeks. When do I use it? Apply to your lawn during March to early October once frost has passed. How much will I need? This pack will create a new lawn of 14m2 (7m x 2m). To determine the size of your lawn multiply the length by the width in metres. Alternatively a lawn with 2 by 2 standard fence panels (1-82m width), will cover approx 14m2. Aftercare The grass can be trimmed when 5-8cm. Each time you mow, lower blade height a level until it's at 3cm. Do not cut more than 1/3 off the growth at any one time. Feeding - Start feeding your new lawn 8 weeks after germination with an appropriate fertiliser. When will I see the results? In ideal conditions when the soil is moist, grass will start to appear from 5 days. In less favourable conditions allow 10-14 days. Over-seed an existing lawn Prepare the lawn by mowing it short, raking out dead grass, moss and debris. Apply a lawn dressing such as EverGreen® Lawn Soil. In dry conditions, moisten the lawn. Sprinkle a small handful of seed for each square metre (25g). Lightly rake the seed into the lawn. Unless it rains, soak with a fine spray and keep soil moist for the next few weeks.
