Grass Seed Guide

Welcome to the Grass Seed Guide from The Grass People, in our guide we will help you decide which grass and lawn seeds are right for you.


At The Grass People we like to share our knowledge of how to successfully sow grass seed. Grass seed is living stuff in a bag but sow it right and care for it correctly it will become a source of great joy. Everyone loves to relax on the grass in the summertime, as we say at The Grass People "Perform or play, we have the right grass seed for you"

We create mixtures from high quality species of grass seed that are suited to specific areas. From front lawns that love a little extra care and attention or back lawns that the kids and dogs play on to shady areas that need some tough seeds to tolerate less sun. Choose the right mixture and get sowing to create a great green space. We are here with guides and tips to help you along the way. Easy steps, fun videos and expert advice for grass that is healthy and looks great.

Choose Quality

Buy the best grass seed because a great lawn starts with great seed. Not all grass seed is the same, it is easy to think that it all performs the same but it doesn’t. There can be a percentage of poor dead seed and chaff in cheap mixtures. Also the seed can be old, like any living thing it loses quality over time. A high quality mixture is selected, cleaned and tested so that you get results from your product.

Cheap seed can fail to germinate and you will end up doing more work over seeding and filling in bare patches on poor growth areas. When you are putting in time and effort sowing a new lawn always buy the best you can afford.

Seed Varieties

We use a wide range of grass seed varieties in our lawn seed mixtures to meet different needs, we have a full list of these in our What's in the Bag

The Grass People have created all our mixtures using the highest quality grass seed and grass seed varieties each with their own strengths.
