Eliminate weeds well before preparing the seed bed, hand weed or use a suitable weed killer (seek advice from your local store). Create a good seed bed by digging the soil over to a depth of 15 cm and leave to settle, ideally for a few weeks. Remove weeds and excess stones. Rake over the whole are to create a flat, fine and friable seed bed. Firm the seed bed by rolling or treading the site evenly. Carry out two equal sowings at right angles to each other and diagonally to main axis. Broadcast manually or use seed drill, rake level and roll. Ensure good seed to soil contact. Apply a suitable fertiliser to ensure adequate nutrients are available for the seed.
- Control weeds if necessary
- Take the first cut when the grass is 6-8 cm and mow down to about 3 ½ cm (or the highest setting your mower will cut to) this will help the lawn to thicken out
- Over the next few weeks gradually reduce the cutting height down to 2 ½ cm.
