For smaller areas, seeding by hand is fairly simple. Use a seed spreader for larger areas. Sow at a rate of 1.25kg (2¾ lbs) per 1,000 square feet. Sow onto bare, prepared soil, with no other vegetation present. The seeds do not need to be buried, but they do need to be in direct contact with the soil. Because lawn spaces tend to be large, we recommend erring on the side of caution. It’s a good idea to withhold 15-20% of seeds for filling in any bald areas later.
Seeding over existing lawn or turf rarely works since the seeds have to be in contact with the soil.
Keep the seeded area completely damp until seedlings are about 2cm (1″) tall. This may call for light watering more than once a day in dry, sunny weather.
