Re-sowing the grass

By Support - October 21st, 2021 | Posted in Blog

Over the summer a large rectangle of our school field had a marquee on it and the grass underneath died. One of our Post16 Horticulture Groups is learning about Garden Maintenance so we decided to repair and re-sow the grass.

First they installed a fence around the area to protect it. Then they weeded and scarified the surface ready for sowing. They sprinkled grass seed evenly over the area at roughly 35g/m2. Finally they watered it in. Job well done!

It’s been fairly wet and sunny since then so we’re hoping for rapid germination!
