i went through the first class, fine leaves lawn phase. Looked wonderful, I think, but it took an awful lot of maintenance.
I think dwarf rye grass seed is best.......sown relatively thickly it forms a dense thick good looking lawn.
preparafion is everything. Firming and levelling the most important factor........I spend a lot of time getting surface right.
Regular mowing is next most important part.........once a week in summer helps produce a good dense award.
there are some "wonderful" grass seed mixtures advertised in the press claiming all sorts of miraculous qualities. they are no better than "ordinary" grass seed in my opinion
