How much grass seed do I need?
To make a lawn from seed, you need to sow 25-30g of grass seed per square metre. If you are over-seeding to renovate an existing lawn or sports field, 15-25g/m2 is plenty. If you know the area of the lawn-to-be, you will be able to calculate your seed requirements.
Sowing grass seed in the UK is best between March and September.
