Hi, don't know if you can recommend a grass seed but I am about to do up my new lawn come March/April and just wondering what you would recommend for using on our lawn or are they all the same in general?

Arrow A No.1. Lawn Seed Mix is made up of very fine grasses, think "putting green", and you are on the right track. If you want a perfect and prestine lawn and are prepared to work hard at maintaining it by never missing a mowing, fertilising or weed killing session, then this is the grass seed mix for you. However be aware, this type of lawn is unforgiving of heavy traffic and poor maintenance.

Arrow A No.2. Lawn Seed Mix is the good all-rounder, it looks well, takes a reasonable amount of wear & tear and requires just a moderate degree of maintenance.

Arrow A No.3. Lawn Seed Mix is ideal for kicking a football about on and in general it puts up with lots of abuse. However be aware, This seed mix comprises some coarse grasses which may not be as attractive to the human eye or touch.

Take your pick.

If it says No.2. Lawn Seed Mix on the pack then there will be very little variation between it and any other No.2. Lawn Seed Mix.
It's best if you can buy a bag with the official dept of agriculture sealing tag attached (harp icon) as this will state the mix, time of sealing, germination rate etc.
