Front Lawn Grass Seed (HM2)
FRONT LAWN 100% RYEGRASS FREE Sowing rate: 50 gms per square metre. (COVERS UP TO 40 SQUARE METRES) This mixture has been formulated to provide a hard wearing but attractive lawn to set off the front of any property to its best advantage. The species used will tolerate closer mowing than the back lawn mixture, but we advocate cutting no lower than 15mm. Cutting the grass too short will deprive it of the vital leaves necessary for plant survival and strong growth. If you are removing the grass clippings from the lawn, remember to feed the lawn. This can be done with any of the products available to you. Reduce unwanted weeds from the area to be sown well in advance of sowing your grass seed. Any chemical treatments after sowing will hamper plant establishment and give the appearance of a very patchy lawn

Lawn seed needs warmth, water and sunlight to grow.
Frost in the week after sowing will kill lawn seed so please only sow when there is no chance of frost usually April to September
Germination can in warm wet weather be as quick as 14 days but in colder weather (especially after a cold winter when soil temperature can be low) will take much longer.
Drought is another factor which will severely delay germination – the seed will ‘wait’ until conditions are better- although watering helps a bit ( almost impossible to have an impact on a large area) there is nothing as good as rain fall.
It is advisable to wear gloves when handling lawn seed as it is possible to have an allergic reaction to it.
