Pitch & Putting Green is all in one amenity seeds mixture to produce a general pitching area, green apron and putting surface at home. Once the grasses have become fully established simply maintain at an appropriate leaf length for each required area. For the very best results the pitch & putting green should be cut with a sharp bladed cylinder mower.
This mixture is also ideal for establishing greens in cooler locations and on the more exposed upland courses of the UK as the slender fescue acts as an excellent protective cover grass whilst the slower growing bentgrass and smooth meadowgrass become established.

- 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, lightly roll or tread over the surface 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.
