- Clear the area to be sown by spraying weeds and removing debris.
- Then prepare a firm level bed by raking the soil and then lightly rolling to compact.
- Sow seed evenly at a rate of 25g per m2. Sow first in a north-south direction and then again in an east-west direction to ensure complete, even coverage. Lightly rake to cover the seed.
- Water gently and keep damp until germination is completed. Your lawn will benefit from regular watering particularly in the drier months of the year.
