There are three important characteristics required from amenity grass seed mixtures intended for a tennis court or lawn. The resulting turf must be resistant to abrasive wear, be uniform and consistent to produce the required playing surface (for regular ball bounce and control). Disease resistance of the grass species and varieties is also high on the agenda and goes a long way towards maintaining a quality playing surface even during hot or humid weather, particularly when the turf is at its most stressed due to frequent summer play.
Our Tennis Court mixture has been carefully formulated to meet all the demanding requirements for uninterrupted use on a well managed turf.

- 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.
