Mowing height: Fine ornamental grass can and should be mowed quite close – as low as 1cm. Coarse ryegrass performs better if you let it grow a little more – up to 4cm. That said, any type of newly-sown grass should be left to grow up to around 7cm before you cut it for the first time. Or try sowing with clover, which will blend in the bare patches and survive drought much better than grass. Clover ‘White Nanouk’ is a low-growing variety. If all of these fail, bark mulch is your best bet. It is not as pretty as grass, but it will keep the mud at bay, is easily topped up and the dogs won’t mind walking on it.

Now of course these estimates can vary greatly depending on the weather. If it’s warm and damp, germination tends to be faster, cold and dry, and germination can take much longer. Sun vs shade: Most types of grass prefer full sun, but fescue is a shade specialist (and will also grow in sunny spots). A ryegrass/fescue mix is the most reliable choice if your garden has shady bits. We understand how important a perfect lawn is.

Could be to so with weather or my individual lawn but initially I thought none of the seeds germinated as four weeks after sowing I still had a muddy lawn. Don’t get carried away and buy 5kg when you’re just planting a small front lawn. Too much seed causes overcrowding, which leads to bald patches. The best grass seed you can buy in 2023 1. Sprogs & Dogs: Best hardwearing grass seed for busy lawns

These hard-wearing grass seed mixtures are designed to be easy to grow and fast to establish, with minimal effort. Like all grass seeds, they will benefit from a pre-seeding fertiliser such as Growmore. To get a good establishment, 70 grams of seed per m 2 (2 oz per square yard) is recommended. Measure the area and allow a little bit extra for subsequent filling in or patching that may be necessary at a later stage. You could also grow a small area somewhere else in your garden so that you have a ready supply of matching turf for any repair work that may be required. Sprogs and Dogs has attracted attention from the media too, with the Independent Newspaper recommended our superb lawn seed mixture (read more about that here). Ryegrass is the most common type of grass seed. It’s coarse, versatile, hard-wearing and fast to grow. Technically speaking it’s a ‘bunch grass’, which means it’s a cool-season grass that thrives in most soil types and conditions. Don’t forget to consider giving your new lawn seed the best possible start. You can use a pre-seeding fertiliser such as Growmore or Blood, Fish & Bone.Key specs – Seed types: Abernile perennial ryegrass, fescue, bentgrass; When to sow: Spring/autumn; Mowing height: Optimum 2.5cm; 500g covers: 14m ²
