Overseeding an existing lawn

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
Allow the seedbed to cultivate for 10-14 days to encourage any weeds to come to the surface, then remove any weeds that appear 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 just-sown seed well 

Sowing a new lawn

Dig the soil over to a depth of 20-25cm
Remove weeds by hand or use a weed killer

Product Questions

The simply seed - when can it be sown?
Question by: Graham Worthington on 2 Feb 2024, 15:09
Thank you for your question.

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.

I sowed my seeds last year in September 2021. Last year it was lush green when the seeds grew. However I’ve since noticed that it’s started to turn yellow. I cut the lawn at a longer length thinking that might be the problem but not changed. It’s also only the new grass that’s turning yellow not my existing lawn.
Question by: Dipal on 13 Apr 2022, 07:47
Hi, thank you for your question.

The yellowing of grass is usually a sign of a lack of nitrogen and is very common. If you have any pets, their urine can also cause yellow patches. A fertiliser like our Quick Release: Spring/Summer fertiliser will help strengthen and thicken up the grass, making it very green and lush. It can also be applied to new lawns once established to help strengthen new seedlings. This is a granular product and will need to be watered until fully dissolved.

I would suggest applying the fertiliser first to treat the yellow patches and then overseed the patches.
