RESTORE: Self-Repair Lawn - All Questions

I have over seeded my lawn with your all rounder seed but still have some bare patches. I do have some seed thats 2 years old can I use that or do you sell just small bags to fill in these patches?
Question by: Ray Daniel on 16 Oct 2020, 11:13
Hi Ray

Our seed is all fresh so will be good for about 12 months, likely 18 but in reality but the less time that passes the better! I would not recommend using the old seed. This is available in a 2kg bag which would be ideal for overseeding.

Thanks Roisin

The bottom third of our lawn is nearly bald (mud patch) due to being used as a football pitch and is also heavily shaded by large overhead trees. Is this 'RESTORE: Self-Repair' grass seed the one for the job or should we be seeding a new lawn from scratch? if latter, which one of your products would be best to use? many thanks

Hi
If the area is heavily shaded then you may be better with one of our shaded mixes. We have two options are our Steadfast: Shade and Steadfast: Ultra Shade mixes. The former is perfect for areas which receive partial shade throughout the day whilst the Ultra Shade mix is for areas that receive little to no light, often described as a blocked permanent shade. Steadfast: Ultra Shade contains a super species called Poa Supina which is exceptionally shade tolerant.

If you want to send us some photos we can take a look at the garden and see if you need to sow from scratch. Our email is [email protected]

I live in Edinburgh and have a small lawn in poor condition with sunlight largely limited to the morning. Is Restore the right seed to use? And is March too early to sow it?

Hi Gordon

if the area is heavily shaded throughout the day then the best options are our Steadfast: Shade and Steadfast: Ultra Shade mixes. The former is perfect for areas which receive partial shade throughout the day whilst the Ultra Shade mix is for areas that receive little to no light, often described as a blocked permanent shade. Steadfast: Ultra Shade contains a super species called Poa Supina which is exceptionally shade tolerant. We would advise that these mixes are sown when the weather is warmer, late spring and summer. Due to the lack of sunlight they rely heavily on the warmer temperatures to assist germination. These will be slower to establish than some of our other mixes but once grown you won't have to worry about those dark spots anymore.

At what time of year/temperatures can I oversees with restore seed
Question by: Steve Maltby on 4 Mar 2021, 09:24
Hi Steve

The grass sowing season is generally from March - September. You can confidently sow grass seed when temperatures are 8-10 degrees and above consistently for at least two weeks with no adverse weather conditions forecast. Always consult a two week forecast prior to sowing.

We have a puppy who has burnt patches into our lawn, I need to repair these but also want it to be strong for it’s high use. Do I get this or the superstar as I am confused which would be best?
Question by: dean clarkson on 22 Mar 2021, 21:57
Hi Dean

Whilst this is a great mix for those gardens that find themselves continuing to need overseeded I'm not sure it will withstand the dog urine. You are better with a more hardwearing mix such as FAMILY: Kids & Pets. This will create a hardwearing, durable lawn but it won't be completely tolerant to the dog urine. We actually have a blog on this in our Help & Advice section which you may find helpful.

HELP My lawn has taken a really bad beating over winter Prolonged Wet, snow constant footfall both human and two collie dogs.
I’m unable to undertake complete renovation but would like to try firstly on small areas. What seed do you suggest and is there a fertiliser in smaller quantities to tackle the existing grass and bring it back to some sort of health

I have recently bought your Organic 365 Fertiliser and Self Repair Lawn Seed. Do you recommend applying the fertiliser before or after the lawn seed? How long should I allow between each application?
Question by: Roger Fryer on 27 Apr 2021, 10:47
Hi, you can do either.
If you apply prior to sowing, ensure all the pellets are fully dissolved before sowing. If you wish to hold of until the lawn is established, it is best to wait the full 6-8 weeks before fertilising.

Hi, Will this seed be suitable for a newly laid lawn? It was laid end of March and has some bolding patches across the lawn.

Majority of lawn has full sun with a small patch shaded by a hedge.
Question by: Ruth on 12 May 2021, 17:04
Hi Ruth, yes you can overseed with any of our seeds mixes.
However, if the patches that did not establish or in the shade you might be better a shade mix.

Do birds eat this seed
Question by: Michael McNally on 15 Jun 2021, 03:27
Hi Michael

Birds will eat all seed, but it is not their preferred source of food and they tend to head to the gardens when their own food source is depleted which doesn't happen often at this time of year. However, there are things you could do to help minimise the chances. Hanging a bird feeder will keep them distracted and full, also hanging something shiny in the lawn such as CDs & DVDs will help keep them at bay.
