Constant Moisture

Now that the seed and soil has been applied to the lawn all you must do is stop it drying out. This means light watering with a very fine spray, twice a day if possible for the first two weeks. Large droplets or heavy watering will move or puddle the seed destroying the even distribution.

The second two weeks, water once a day or every other day. If things start drying out increase the frequency.

In month two you can water more heavily and less frequently; twice a week will do.

Finally, water once a week in month three and keep watering if things get dry. New grass is prone to drying in the first six months.


Depending on the temperature you should start to see some green shoots within 14 to 21 days. When the grass hits 5cm you can start mowing your lawn.

Make sure the grass is dry and the mower freshly sharpened. Go slowly for the first few times you mow to ensure the grass is cut as cleanly as possible. Mow on the highest setting possible so that no more than 1/3 of the grass is removed. The grass will be quite tender so make big slow turns.

Once the grass gets its fourth cut you can start bringing the mowing height down over the next 4 to 5 cuts to the desired height for that time of year.


Do not use the lawn until the new grass has become established, usually 10-12 weeks. You can then begin to use the lawn but keep activity on the lawn light for the first 2 months.

Within 16 weeks the new grass will become fully established. This will be the optimum time for the lawn to receive its next treatment. We will communicate with you to check the progress of germination after 4 weeks and we will return in 8 weeks to ensure everything is growing as it should be.
