How to use

For a new lawn:

  1. Turn over the top 10cm of soil and break up clods to produce a fine, weed-free surface. For best results, apply a 3cm layer of Lawn Builder Topdress Mix and rake over again.
  2. Determine the size of your area in square metres by multiplying the length by the width (1 large stride = 1 metre approx).
  3. Shake the box well and apply approximately 2 handfuls (28g/m2) by moving backwards as you scatter the seed. Ensure the seed is evenly dispersed and lightly rake over.
  4. Deeply water the area using a soft spray and keep the area evenly moist until the seedlings reach 5-8cm tall.
  5. First mow when seedlings reach 8-10cm tall.
  6. After 3 months, fertilise the whole lawn with Lawn Builder All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser.

Oversowing:

  1. Closely mow the existing lawn.
  2. Shake the box well before use and apply approximately 1 handful (14g) of the product per square metre by moving backwards as you scatter the seed.
  3. Try to ensure the seed is evenly dispersed.
  4. Deeply water the area using a soft spray and keep the area evenly moist until the area evenly moist for the first 2-3 weeks
  5. First mow when seedlings reach 8-10cm tall.
  6. After 3 months, fertilise the whole lawn with Lawn Builder All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser.
