Lawn re-sowing dilema

DinahDinah Posts: 278

I'm having to re-lay my lawn, and am doing the digging and raking bit by bit so I don't overdo myself. Should I sow the seed bit by bit as I go along, or is it best to wait till the whole lot is ready. I'm expecting it to take another month to get the whole lot ready. What do you think?

    Hi Dinah, get it all prepared first. It would be impossible to get it looking right if you sow bits here and there. It's still early so you've plenty of time for getting the seed down and having it germinate before summer. image

    Totally agree with Verdun and Fairygirl image

    Except ........ where Verdun says "........ then sow seed from opposite direction...."  I think he means ".... sow it at right angles to the first sowing .... "  don't you Verdun?

    That's great advise, really good details, thank you. I am quite relieved at the outcome, I was wondering how I was going to keep the whole thing under control and worried that if I waited till it was all ready it would be too late. I'll keep my eye out for weeds sprouting in the meantime. I am quite looking forward to the big seed sowing day now image
