Lawn Shop Family LA3 Lawn Seed – A very versatile mixture that will look great on the front and rear lawns if you do not want a bowling green quality and normally mow with a rotary mower.
It will produce a hard wearing lawn that will recover from the normal family wear and tear. A great all round performer. This mixture is similar to a tennis court or golf tees or cricket square mixture. Produces a lawn that quickly becomes established. It has a superb shoot density and good wear tolerance. A clean appearance when cut and attractive colour all year round.
The seed once established will produce a dense lawn which when fertilised on a regular basis will maintain an excellant sward, capable of with standing the wear expected from a Family Lawn.
It is important to alleviate soil compaction and use a pre-seed fertiliser prior to sowing. When cutting, it is important to keep the mower blades relatively high eg: 25mm.
The seed mixture contains – 50% Amenity Perennial Ryegrass, 32% Strong Creeping Red Fescue, 10% Chewings Fescue, 6% Slender Creeping Red Fescue and 2% Highland Bent
Apply to new lawns at a rate of 50 grams per sqm or over seeding at 25 grams per sqm.
If you are planning to scarify your lawn always over seed it with grass seed afterwards. If your lawn is looking thin, then over seed it before the weeds and moss get a hold.
