The enthusiasts lawn is a beautiful thing to behold. The ultimate achievement being a short, dense but fine leaved turf which keeps excellent colour throughout the year. Our Ornamental Lawn seed mixture contains only the finest leaved amenity type grass cultivars (Not cheap fillers such as creeping red or strong red fescue) with the proper characteristics required to produce nothing less than a prestigious, formal type lawn – without compromise.
Extreme care should be made during the preparation of the seedbed for ornamental lawn seed ensuring a firm, flat, clean and even surface is created before sowing the lawn seed mixture. Regular aftercare and proper maintenance is vital in producing and maintaining a first class appearance. The frequent use of a sharp bladed cylinder mower is highly recommended. A blade height of between 8-15mm will take a clean and even cut ensuring your ornamental lawn always looks at its very best.

- 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 lawn 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.
- 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.
