I sowed a fine quality lawn and most lawn seed suppliers offer this fine seed.
A cylinder mower is essential. Cutting twice a week too. A low cut too. Mowing at right angles to previous mowing. Regular feeding, watering,,raking and spiking. Yes it is high maintenance.
My high quality lawn was maintained for a few years.
I have since given up on a high quality fine seeded lawn because it is far from hard wearing. My front lawn has dwarf rye in it now, is cut higher and is tougher. My dog walks and lies on it as do I.
I am complimented on my lawn...it is rich green, soft to the touch and nice to look at. No longer a bowling green lawn but a good one.
