      Any bulk grass seed product for trade use must be a balanced combination of economy and quality. General Purpose Landscape seed will produce a dense, multi-purpose turf that can be quickly established and easily maintained offering good appearance at a cost effective price.

      This is one of our most popular mixtures used by landscape contractors, estate managers, builders and groundsman for establishing an amenity ryegrass based turf on high traffic sites or as a general overseeding and repair mixture for hardwearing lawns, sports fields or other well used areas.

      This bulk grass seed mixture is also very suitable for new construction sites and reinstatement projects, often designed by an architect or governed by a standard building regulation, where a hardwearing turf is required but an exact mixture is not clearly specified.

      Sow General Purpose Landscape seed at the higher rate if grass density is required more quickly or at the lower rate if economy is the leading factor.
      Once established maintain a cutting height of 15 to 50mm.

      SOWING INSTRUCTIONS

      • Produce a firm, weed free seedbed clear of large stones and any other debris.
      • Rake or harrow over the surface to create a thin layer of fine soil (tilth) approximately 10-20mm deep.
      • Split the total quantity of amenity grass seed to be applied into two equal amounts.
      • Apply the first half over the entire area either by hand or by using a broadcast spreader.
      • Gently work most of the applied seeds into the tilth with a firm rake or harrow.
      • Apply the remaining seed in the same way and again, rake or harrow most of them into the tilth.
      • Finally, use a light to medium weight flat roller to squeeze the seeds and tilth down into the seedbed.This method ensures the amenity grass seeds are evenly spread, set at different depths and in good contact with the soil. All of which helps to anchor the seeds in position so as not to float away during heavy or persistant rainfall and to retain the correct moisture level for quicker germination.
      • Amenity grass seed may also be surface sown however, germination may be uneven and significantly slower particularly during periods of prolonged sunny, dry or windy weather even with regular irrigation.
