Canada No.1 Lawn Seed Mixture. Perfect for beach areas and cottages. The grasses in this blend thrive in poor, dry soils and tolerates heavy traffic when established. Contains Turf Type Perennial Ryegrass and Chewings Fescue. This blend also grows quite well in areas of half day shade. For maintained lawn areas, cut at 8.75 cm (3.5″) for best performance and toughness. In non-maintained areas this blend will reach a mature height of about 30-35 cm (12-14″).
How to Grow
For New Lawns, spread good clean topsoil to a depth of 15 cm (6”). Break up any clumps and rake level. For repairing old lawns, mow grass close to the soil surface. Rake vigorously to remove clippings and accumulated thatch. Add top soil to fill in any low spots then rake smooth. Grass seed can be applied in spring when the soil warms and again from mid August to late September. Sow grass seed at a rate of 454 g per 16 sq. m (1 lb per 175 sq. ft.) Apply twice at half rate over the area in a criss-cross pattern. Rake the seeded area lightly to just cover seed with a fine layer of soil. Roll once with a roller at half capacity if the soil is light. Water with a fine spray for two or three weeks to keep the seedbed moist during the 2 week germination period. Mow for the first time when seedlings reach 8 cm (3“) height. Seed in this blend typically starts to germinate in 1 1/2 to 2 weeks when both soil temperature and moisture conditions are ideal. Note that cold and/or dry soil can greatly extend the normal germination time.
