Planning to lay new lawn from seed. not interested in roll out turf btw
Will look to use grade 3 for tough wearing. Does anyone recommend best brand seed. I saw some 'green lawn' seed shade resistant etc but not sure. For example would know gouldings better by name.

Within reason there is not much difference between different seed companies.
The difference is mainly between the different seed grades.

grade 3 is, as you say; hard wearing but it is also faster growing and will require more cuts over the season.

A grade 2 is a suitable choice as its got the best of both worlds; hard wearing, fast establishing, and less cutting.

Also you'll want to get a a move on because you don't wan to leave it much later than the end of September to sow a new lawn
