About this deal
The onslaught of my two labradors means I have paved over most of my lawn, but the remaining grass turns nasty even with frequent cleaning and raking. Key specs – Seed types: Dwarf ryegrass, creeping red fescue, bentgrass; When to sow: Spring/autumn; Mowing height: 1.
If it’s warm and damp, germination tends to be faster, cold and dry, and germination can take much longer. I’ll be getting another bag to have for reseeding later in the year if needed as this was my first time when I completely redone my lawn and probably I didn’t do a perfect job.
Sowing your grass seed is very easy, follow these simple steps and soon you will have a lawn that will turn your neighbours green with envy.
Grass seed is also widely available in more varieties, giving you the freedom to create the kind of lawn you want. Sun vs shade: Most types of grass prefer full sun, but fescue is a shade specialist (and will also grow in sunny spots). Landscape Seed Our landscape grass seed range contains some of our most popular mixtures used in the industry.The seeds germinate quickly, with initial shoots appearing in days, but growth rate is slow and you’ll need to be very vigilant about weeds.
We supply mixtures for all soil types, with annuals and perennials, and all the flowers we sell are native. Throw and Grow Our range of colourful non-native wildflower mixtures are a quick and easy way to add a splash of colour to an otherwise dull area.Or try sowing with clover, which will blend in the bare patches and survive drought much better than grass. The main downsides are that it’s slow to establish, and the ryegrass-free mix requires warmer temperatures to germinate. Some users report slow germination (“don’t panic, it took a good month”) but this mix creates a lovely dark green grass if you’re patient.
