Hi guys, I am new here, and recently undertook the landscaping of my garden..
I am coming to the tail end of the project and have recently sown the lawn with luxury wilko seed.
It's come through pretty well considering the time of year, but there are noticeable patches and thinned areas.
I appreciate the time difference in seed germination and there will be more growth but due to the ever so slight dips and pooling when heavy rain or even watering occurs. I am considering adding a real fine layer of topsoil and reseeding with a more hardwaring seed, adding maybe that slight more gradient for water to run off.
Point of the thread is..
How long should I leave it before applying seed and soil?
Should it be left untill the first mow?
Is it a good/bad idea to add a covering of ryegrass/hardwearing seed over the top?
Would adding a slight gradient at this point stop water pooling?
The lawn is free draining with a deep bed of good soil and gravel channels leading to soakaway.
Thanks in advance, Dai
