Spring and autumn are ideal times to plant lawn seed. Avoid the very cold and very hot and dry months. Sow seed at the rate recommended (typically 3 – 5kg / 100m2). Seed should be broadcast on the surface evenly and then raked lightly to ensure good seed to soil contact.
Keep the soil moist at all times while the seed is germinating, approximately 5 – 7 days. Reduce watering as the lawn becomes established. Check with your local council for regulations on the watering of lawns.
For new lawns mow when the grass is 8 – 10 cm high taking off the top 1/3 of the plant. Do not mow when the grass and groundis damp. Once established, the ideal grass mowing height is 4 – 5 cm.
Fertilise before a period of good rainfall in autumn and spring.
