Why overseed using lawn seed with clover?
Adding ECO: Clover Lawn to your garden provides an excellent nectar source for insects, especially bees! In addition, this unique mix of quality lawn seed with clover is very drought-tolerant and grows well in wet and cold conditions, which is perfect for the UK climate. An added bonus is that clover takes nitrogen from the air and converts it into nutrients that feed into the soil, fertilising itself and the grass in your lawn.
Clover is a climate-smart solution that looks good, smells sweet and helps the environment. By overseeding using lawn seed with clover, you will be getting the fantastic benefits of this plant for you, your family and nature to enjoy.
Overseeding with clover
Overseeding a clover lawn is not difficult, and following a few simple steps will ensure your lawn seed with clover grows well from day one!
- Remove any dead grass, weeds or moss by scarifying/raking the area
- Rake the area enough so that the soil is loose and not compact
- Leave the area to cultivate for 10-14 days. This will encourage dormant weeds to come to the surface, which can then be removed by hand.
- Sow the seed at our recommended rate of 35g per m2 by using a seed spreader or your hand
- Rake the seed in after sowing so that the seed is in amongst the soil
- Firm down by foot or by using a roller to improve seed-to-soil contact
- Water the newly-sown seed well
