Directions for use

Wear protective clothing when applying lawn seed and wash hands when completed.


Spring and autumn are the best times to sow a lawn. To grow a successful lawn the soil needs to be in the best possible condition. Clear away existing weeds and grass. Apply a layer of Tui LawnForce® Lawn Preparation Mix 25-30mm deep to the area, to provide lawn seed with a base of essential nutrients and fertiliser. Create a level and compact area by raking, rolling and filling in where needed. Water before sowing lawn seed.


Choose a fast growing seed such as Tui Basin Reserve Lawn Seed to start seeing results in as little as seven days. Sow seed on a fine day at 25g per square metre. Sow in an east to west direction then a north to south direction to ensure an even spread. Rake in lightly to cover seed. Water lightly and keep moist on a daily basis while the seed germinates. Wait until it has grown to at least 5cm before mowing, so the root system has had time to develop.


A thick, healthy lawn stops broadleaf and other weeds from becoming established. After you have mown it three or four times, apply Tui LawnForce® Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser to encourage lush, thick, green growth in your lawn. Once established, fertilise your lawn in spring, early summer and autumn. Well watered, well nourished lawns will have a better chance of keeping weeds, insect pests and diseases at bay.
