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

Sowing grass seed in the UK is best between March and September.

  1. Prepare the soil: Remove any weeds, debris or stones from the area where you want to sow the grass seed. The soil should be raked to create a fine surface.
  2. Measure the area: Measure the area where you want to sow the seed to determine how much seed you will need. For sowing a new lawn you will need 25-30g per sqm and for oversowing 15-25g will do the job.
  3. Sow the seed: Sow the seed evenly over the prepared soil, either by hand or using a seed spreader. Lightly rake the soil to ensure the seed is covered by a thin layer of soil.
  4. Water the area: Water the area well after sowing the seed, ensuring that the soil stays moist until the grass seed germinates. This usually takes between 7-21 days depending on the temperature and moisture.
  5. Maintain the area: Once the grass has established, continue to water it regularly until it is fully established.
  6. To ensure your soil is protected and your grass is resilient to drought and wildlife friendly there’s no need to mow too low or too regularly, and in winter it’s a real benefit to insects and saves lots of work for you.
