Usage Guide

Sowing PERFORM: Cricket Outfield grass seed

Dig the soil over to a depth of 20-25cm
Remove weeds or moss by hand or use a Feed, Weed and Moss Killer
Add top soil if you believe the soil to be poor quality or unlevel
Then level the seedbed using a rake
Allow the seedbed to cultivate for 10-14 days. This is to encourage any existing 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 scatter the seeds by hand
Rake the seed after sowing so that the seed is embedded into the soil
Firm down by foot or by using a roller to improve seed-to-soil contact
Water the newly seeded area after sowing

Product Questions

When fertilising and applying lime to a cricket outfield, is it necessary to do it at the same time as slitting, or can the processes be separate?
