Hey all,
Recently leveled, raked, destoned and seeded my lawn but was wondering if anyone has any helpful hints in helping me in achieving a decent lawn?
The seed is knitting pretty good and has been cut twice however there are many visible boldy areas across my lawn.
Anything would be much appreciated CHEERS..............;0)[/i]

How short did you cut the grass and were there pigeons or other bird eat the seed?

Cut grass @ around 2.5 inches and yes there does be birds on the lawn but they do be at the lower end of the garden and the seed there is pretty good, so i don't think the birds are a problem?

Grass seems to be coming along grand since we had those heavy down pours, done it the world of good.
Is there a product out there that can be used on the lawn to speed up growth or to help growth in general?

Hi greenbeaver....

Just a note... if you speed up the growth you will have to cut it more often. That's OK if you enjoy that sort of thing.

There's big money to be made if you can think of a product to slow things down a bit...........

It might be a bit early to start feeding the grass so maybe if you just leave the clippings on the ground for the next couple of cuts... that should do the job nicely.

Bald patches are natural in a anew lawn, grass grows at different speeds depending where it is. Under trees would be a bit slower because it's drier. Wet bits might be a bit slow too. You will find lush bits near the veggie patch though as nutrients leach from them....

Anyway, there's nothing wrong with bald patches.... mine are developing nicely....

Cheers

Ian
