Feed and Weed: this is the time of year to feed your lawn. If there is a lot of moss or weeds, use Evergreen Complete which combines feed, weedkiller and mosskiller.

Sowing Grass Seed

Best time: April-May/ late August & September when soil is warming up but its not too hot and dry.

  • The better the preparation, the better the results.
  • Eliminate weeds with weedkiller, or hand weed.
  • Dig or rotovate the site to a depth of 20-25cm (8-10in).
  • Ensure surface is level:, tread the area several times in different directions and then rake several times also in different directions. (not in wet weather)
  • Apply & rake in 70g per sq m (2oz per sq yd) of general-purpose fertiliser.
  • Sow the grass seed evenly according to instructions on the box & lightly rake over to cover seeds with soil.
  • If weather is dry, water gently. Keep birds off.
  • Avoid walking on it for 3-4 weeks
  • Dont cut grass short till well established.
