Garden Grass Seeds Planting Process
The steps below are vital to getting a healthy and beautiful lawn. If you skip any of these steps, it may result in your seeds not germinating or growing properly. Here is the garden grass planting process to get a gorgeous lawn in no time.
Choose the Right Kind of Grass Seed
First, you are going to choose the right kind of grass seed. The type you choose will largely have to do with the climate where you live, but you can find grass species for cool-season and warm-season lawns.
Our wide range of blended seed mixtures vary depending on how much shade is on your lawn, how much traffic goes across your lawn and more. Depending on what type of grass you choose, cool weather or warm weather grasses, when to plant your grass will differ as well.

Measure Area To Be Planted
Before you order your grass seed, you need to measure the area that you are planting. To begin, you will need to calculate the area of your garden or the section of soil you are planting.
Each seed mixture requires different amounts to be sown - typically it will be described as 20-50g/m2. This means if you have a 10m2 garden you’ll want to purchase 2-5kg of grass seed.
Before you actually begin planting you’ll need to prepare your soil. It needs to be loosened properly; you can do this with a spade, a tiller, or a fork.
You’ll also need to remove things that will inhibit the growth of your garden grass seeds. Remove weeds, rocks, and anything else that will get in the way of your grass as it grows.
If you know the pH levels of your soil, you can improve it by adding lime which can improve the rate at which the seeds germinate.
Make sure you let your soil rest for a few days before you begin planting. Once you’re ready to sow, level the soil with a rake.
Plant Lawn Seeds
Once your soil has been prepared, it is time to start planting your grass seeds. You can easily do this by sprinkling the seeds with your hand, but you want to make sure you don't spread too many seeds too close together.
Planting them too close together can inhibit the growth of some of the seed. Some gardens mix the seed in with sand or flour - this enables them to see where they’ve planted to ensure an even coverage.
After you spread the seeds, roll them into the soil. You can do this with a roller or a rake. Rolling your seeds into the soil means they will be embedded enough to grow and it will prevent them from blowing away in the wind.
This will also prevent your newly planted seeds from being eaten by birds and from washing away in harsh weather.
After you plant your garden grass seeds, if you don't water them and fertilise them properly, the seeds may not grow effectively. Watering your seeds is especially important right after planting. Make sure they are heavily watered to help them adjust to their new location.
You may wonder how often you should water new grass seeds. Ensure the soil is watered consistently for about a month. You want the soil to be moist, so never allow it to dry out.
A common misconception is that newly planted seeds should be fertilised straight away; this can actually damage your seeds. Instead, wait to fertilise for about a month after your grass seeds germinate and grow.
