  • Covers 100m2 when used to establish new lawns

Wear and tear, the weather and your pet pooch can often play havoc with lawns, changing them from broad sweeps of lush green to what may resemble pock-marked playing fields! Regular repairing with quality lawn seed will bring tired lawns back to their full glory

HOW IT WORKS

Scotts Lawn Builder™ Seed & Feed works by delivering a blend of lawn seeds and lawn starter fertiliser that is easy to apply and care for during the first few weeks until established


HOW TO USE

For a new lawn

Turn over the top 10cm of soil and break up clods to produce a fine, weed-free surface. For best results, apply a 3cm layer of Scotts Lawn Builder™ Topdress Mix and rake over again
Determine the size of your area in square metres by multiplying the length by the width (1 large stride = 1 metre approx)
Shake the box well and apply approximately 1 handful (14g/m2) by moving backwards as you scatter the seed. Ensure the seed is evenly dispersed and lightly rake over
Deeply water the area using a soft spray and keep the area evenly moist until the seedlings reach 5-8cm tall
First mow when seedlings reach 8-10cm tall
After 3 months, fertilise the whole lawn with Scotts Lawn Builder™ All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser


Oversowing

Closely mow the existing lawn
Shake the box well before use and apply approximately ½ handful (7g) of the product per square metre by moving backwards as you scatter the seed
Try to ensure the seed is evenly dispersed
Deeply water the area using a soft spray and keep the area evenly moist until the seedlings reach 5-8cm tall
First mow when seedlings reach 8-10cm tall
After 3 months, fertilise the whole lawn with Scotts Lawn Builder™ All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser
