Blend of seeds

Scotts Lawn Builder™ Patch Magic's mix of five lawn seed varieties are chosen for durability and ability to tolerate sunny and shaded areas as well as heavy wear and tear; the mix will blend in with most turf varieties

Expanding mulch

The unique coir expanding mulch is capable of holding 5x its own weight in water, providing a moist environment for the seeds to germinate and grow in

Lawn starter fertiliser

Gives the sprouting seeds and new grass everything they need to develop strong roots and healthy leaves

Mulch changes colour as it dries

As the expanding mulch dries, it changes colour from deep rich brown to light brown, indicating that it's time to water. On warm sunny days, you might need to water four or five times to ensure the mulch stays nice and moist all the time

How to use

3 Steps to Success! 

Important: Expands up to 5x in size with water. Use as per instructions. 

  1. Preparation

    Simply prepare the area where you want to grow grass. Remove dead grass, weeds and loosen hard soil to a depth of 5cm to help tiny seedlings take root. Shake well before use.

  2. Apply

    Evenly apply Scotts Lawn Builder™ Patch Magic so the area is mostly covered, but bare ground is still visible (use half as much for thin areas). Only apply the recommended amount so that seedling have enough space to access water and nutrients.

  3. Water

    A deep and thorough initial watering is the key to success. Gently water the area until Scotts Lawn Builder™ Patch Magic is completely saturated and no more water is being absorbed. Keep moist especially in hot or windy conditions.

    Scotts Lawn Builder™ Patch Magic will tell you when it is time to water again. When it turns light brown, add more water!
