1 - Recommended sowing periods:
April, May June, August, September and October.
The sowing period is variable depending on the climate and the area.
2 - Soil preparation:
Fork over the site, 20 cm in depth.
Crumble up the soil clumps.
Rake level to leave a fine finish.
It is possible that some weeds appear. Leave them to develop for a few days then apply a non-selective, non-residual and eco-friendly weed killer.
3 - Sowing:
In good weather, scatter the seeds regularly, in crossing the seeds for a homogeneous repartition (half of the seeds lengthways, the other half widthways).
Lightly cover the seeds (3 to 8 mm deep).
Go over with a roller to improve soil contact.
Water daily as soon as the grass appears, then reduce watering to once a week but abundantly, when the lawn is established.
4 - Lawn maintenance:
The first cut can be done when the lawn is 8 to 10 cm in height for a cutting between 5 and 6 cm high. Limit moss development in favouring light, aeration of the soil using a scarifier and by lifting and removing dead leaves.
In order to make your lawn last, bring in an organic fertilizer in autumn preferably and /or in the spring.
