Repair or Overseeding Lawn Seed with Amenity (Dwarf) Ryegrass. This purposeful blend provides the fast growing grasses which rapidly knit a previously scarified, torn up or worn out lawn area back together producing a hard wearing turf often better and stronger than before. For general over seeding or to beef up high traffic lawns or sites that have already suffered damage to an existing turf.
This amenity seeds mixture can be used over an entire lawn, particularly after spring and autumn moss or thatch removal (ref: above picture) or as a general spring or autumn top up. Regular applications or ‘Overseeding’ with lawn seed can help minimise space for weed invasion and often encourages a more even, dense turf with good all 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.
Repairing or Overseeding Lawn Seed With Ryegrass will require more frequent cutting maintenance than a finer leaved, fescue based mixture.
