Application of Lawn Seed:  

 

Preparing Ground for a New Lawn

Approx 2 weeks before sowing your lawn, prepare your ground by clearing weeds and debris. Even out the ground surface and apply Morton Smith-Dawe Lawn Fertiliser approx 20g per square metre and water in well.

 

Sowing New Lawn

Rake lightly to loosen surface and to ensure surface is even. Apply Morton Smith-Dawe Lawn Seed approx 1kg per 32 square metres and rake very lightly to ensure seed is covered with a light layer of soil.

 

Watering New Lawn:

It is important to keep your new lawn moist at all times in the first 2-3 weeks to ensure more even growth.

When watering use a mist spray until lawn is fully established, ensuring water does not puddle.

 

Mowing

Allow your new lawn approx 6cm in growth before mowing and cut very lightly leaving approx 3cm of length. Repeat for the next 3-4 times. Once your lawn is established or after 3-4 months, apply Morton Smith-Dawe Lawn Fertiliser using approx 35g per square metre, water in well. This will help with growth and to ensure a lush green lawn.
