Over-sowing Old Lawn

Simply rake and sow.

  1. Mow the area to a low height and rake off any surplus grass.
  2. Rake over the area using a steel rake or heavy plastic rake, enough to create some loose soil.
  3. Spread starter fertiliser.
  4. Spread seed.
  5. Rake over again to incorporate seed and fertilise with some loose soil.
  6. Keep the area continuously moist until complete germination has occurred.
