Most lawns require an occasional top up with grass seeds to keep them in first class condition. Lawns may thin out due to plant losses after a cold or wet winter, extended periods of dry weather or just from the general wear and tear of everyday use.
The slender leaved grass species in our lawn repair mixture may be used for patching up a damaged area or overseeding an entire lawn, particularly after thatch removal or general spring and autumn scarifying to encourage quick infill and a densely populated, even turf.
A good quality fine leaved lawn repair seed mixture of fescue and bentgrass will re-establish unoccupied areas around established grasses leaving little or no space in a turf for weed invasion and help maintain better year round colour.
Overseeding a lawn is one of those unfortunate jobs which requires making a turf look worse before it looks better as the surface requires vigorously scratching over (scarifying) to expose some soil as a seedbed. This action must be implemented simply because small lawn seeds need to be in intimate contact with soil and moisture to successfully germinate and properly establish.
Once overseeding has been carried out it is very important to roll or tread the sown area firm again to consolidate the seedbed and further guarantee the applied seeds are in good contact with the soil.
Lawn Repair Without Ryegrass may take longer to fully establish but requires less frequent maintenance than ryegrass based mixtures.

- Vigorously rake over or scarify the entire area to be seeded. This action should expose at least some soil required as a seedbed. If the surface cannot be exposed then a thin top dressing of 50% sand, 50% topsoil may be applied as a false seedbed.
- Broadcast the seeds at the recommended rate over the entire area.
- Gently rake over the area to ensure the seeds are in contact with the seedbed then firm down with the back of the rake, by using a light garden roller or by lightly treading over. This not only puts the grass seed into good contact with soil moisture but also anchors the lawn seeds into position preventing them from floating away during heavy/persistent rainfall.
- Lawn 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.
