Grass seed some growing some not?

Posted: 25/07/2014 at 18:47

Some of the seed is away and the lawn looks lovely from a angle, its when I look from a height when you see how horrible it is. over 2 days Ive done about 4 hours weeding and Im only half done. :/

Grass seed some growing some not?

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 12:34

I bought a 10kg bag of grass seed part rye, and its been down a while now but some of it has not grown and where it hasnt grown weeds have set in!

Its not like there is one big patch that is not growing there is just random patches all over. I feel like pulling the lot up again.

Any advice guys?

round up touch any reviews?

Hey there

What do you guys think of the round up touch? Has anyone used it?

Ive got loads of bindweed coming in from the garden next door, over the fence through the concrete everywhere Ive pulled it out but it just keeps coming back, has anyone used this on bindweed what do you think?

Also do you you think I could use it on the odd weed that pops though in the lawn as grass seed grows or will it kill off the stuff around it??

Thanks guys

Hey guys

Im finding it a bit hard to get the soil level for the grass seed to go down.

I know no one is ever gonna get it perfect but after continuous raking Im still finding hills and valleys.

Anyone got any tips?

Thanks guys

Tips and advice needed for new lawn.

I've managed to get all the old turf off now its bare I'm bringing up soil from the bottom of the garden just to fill out gaps and holes. I'm going to have to raise the sides and put some planks along it as one side has more or less merged with my border. 

The rest of my garden is mostly weed free as I have a lot of veg in my borders with the flowers etc but I know Im going to get the odd few. I think I might just top it up with the soil and leave it so rest and go about pulling weeds till the end of summer then put the seed down.

 

Thanks guys

Tips and advice needed for new lawn.

Posted: 19/06/2014 at 01:12

I've give in! I'm lifting my lawn atm as its a right state, there is more weeds, clover, thatch, moss and nettles than what there is on the wild field out the back of me.

So I've give in I'm going to lay a new lawn. I'm having some top soil delivered to raise the lawn a bit but is there anything I should put on it before I put the grass seed down?
Is there anything I can do to stop weeds growing while the seed is rooting?

Any hits, tips or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks guys

I put one on last year but there was no change, I only done it once though as I have quite a large lawn I used it all.

Ive got a lawn that was laid turf a good 20 year ago now, It has thatch and moss which a really good scarifying helps with but this year besides that Im wanting to rid it of weeds. Its mainly daisy's dandelions buttercups and clover some crab grass here and there. I really cant be bothered or have the time to pull it all up this year so Im hoping for some miracle potion to put on it over this year that may help.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys
Jen
