It important that the ground is prepared adequately and an appropriate seedbed fertiliser such as growmore is applied before sowing. Ensure the grass seed is watered if a spell of dry weather follows sowing. Be careful not to overwater as it will encourage a shallow root system. Once the lawn is established apply an appropriate lawn feed as required and over-seed the lawn annually.
Doing just a few lawncare activities in the Spring and Autumn will help to keep your lawn in great shape and get it off to a flying start the following year. It doesn’t take too long and is well worth the time and effort.
