Frequently Asked Questions

EverGreen Multi Purpose Lawn Seed

Q1: What grass seed is in the box?
A1: There is a mixture of dwarf perennial rye grass and fine fescues for a hard wearing lawn.
Q2: I have sown the grass seed which is coming up but there are weeds growing as well why?
A2: The weeds that have appeared in your new lawn are commonly occurring, opportunistic species. Such weeds often come up on newly disturbed soil, where they can rapidly colonise and establish themselves. They will have originated from seed which has lain dormant in the soil, possibly for many years, or from weed seed that may have been wind-blown, or introduced by birds. Some of these weed species will disappear by regular mowing. Others might need to be treated once the new lawn has been well established. All grass seed is examined for purity before it is released for sale.
Q3: How do I overseed a lawn?
A3: Mow the lawn short, rake out any dead grass etc. Spread and rake EverGreen Lawn Soil thinly over the lawn and sprinkle 25gm/sqm of seed evenly across the lawn and rake it in. Water in with a fine spray and keep moist until the grass has established. Another option is to apply the seed first, and then apply a very thin layer of lawn soil on top. Water with a fine spray and keep moist until the grass has established.
