Basic Sowing Information: Prepare the ground to a nice fine seed bed. Seed can be sown from mid March until early October, as long as during dry periods the seedbed is kept constantly moist until the grass is approx 5cm high. Water the seed bed with a fine spray to prevent the seeds or seedlings being displaced. A general rule of thumb to get a good established lawn is 50 grams of seed per square metre, allowing a little extra for filling in or patching at a later date. To sow the seed it is best to divide the area into easily managable sections and sow evenly over the area.
