When to use


Ensure your lawn survives the extreme heat with Scotts® Lawn Builder™ Superstrike® Hot & Dry Lawn Seed. This quality blend of tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass and fine turf ryegrass is ideal for producing a deep-rooted lawn that can last with less watering. Suitable for light and sandy soils.


  • For warm, dry conditions
  • Germinates in 7 days*
  • Suitable for light & sandy soils
  • Covers approximately 30m²



  • Lawns are best sown in early spring and early autumn. Clear the area to be sown by spraying weeds and removing existing debris and grass.
  • Prepare a firm, level bed by raking the soil and then lightly rolling to compact.
  • Sow seed evenly at a rate of 25g per m2. Sow in a north-south direction and then again in an east-west direction to ensure complete, even coverage.
  • Lightly rake to cover the seed.
  • Water gently and keep damp until germination is completed. Your lawn will benefit from regular watering, particularly in drier months.
  • Your new lawn will be ready to mow when it has reached a height of 5cm and the root system is established. Set blades high and ensure they are sharp to protect the young seedlings.
  • Subsequent mowing can be reduced in height to 2.5cm.
  • Once established fertilise your lawn with Scotts Lawn Builder Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser.

*Seeds will germinate in 7 days in ideal weather conditions and when the correct steps are followed.

In non-ideal weather conditions, germination can take up to 14 days.


Scotts Lawn Builder Superstrike® Lawn Seed has a unique seed treatment which encourages fast germination of lawn seed (7 days!*). The industry leading treatment also protects the seed from common fungal diseases during establishment and reduces bird theft. It includes an additive which effectively binds the treatment to the seed, minimising dust.



Store safely out of the reach of children and pets. Wear protective clothing including a mask and gloves when handling treated seed

SAFETY FIRST: Read the instructions on the product packaging before use and take particular note of any warnings or cautions on the label
