Establishing a New Lawn
Preparing your patch
Spray the area for your new lawn with Glyphosate weedkiller. If you are not sowing your lawn immediately, respraying after a couple of weeks will help to prevent regrowth of weeds.
The area should be clean and finely tilled, ready for seeding.
Sowing the seed
Spread half the total amount of seed over the whole area, then repeat with the rest of the seed to ensure uniform coverage. Using a hand spreader can assist with spreading. The rate of sowing for your selected seed can be found on the product page.
Finishing it off
Turfmaster Starter fertiliser should be spread uniformly, just as the seed was.
This will allow for maximum soil to seed contact, without burying the seed too deep.
Use Aquaturf MAX G Wetting Agent to ensure even wetting of soil and to hold moisture around new seedlings.
Water with a fine droplet sprinkler or by hand, until very wet (but without ponding). Maintain a moist surface through the germination period by frequent light watering rather than occasional heavy watering.
