Seeding rate / sowing rate: Checkout specific product information sheets for the species/seed mixtures (hyperlink)
For seeding rate, see the product information sheets for your species/seed mixture – typical overseeding rates are 5 to 60 g/m² depending on frequency and purpose
Use a disc seeder or a studded roller seeder for the best results – broadcasting is less efficient if the existing turf is dense or vigorous, and when the ground is dry
Cut the old grass to lower than normal height just before or in the first 2 to 3 days after overseeding – if the seed was broadcast, don't cut immediately after overseeding
The frequency of overseeding depends on availability of machinery and staff – as infrequently as once a year or as often as once a month during the growing season (ideally combined with verticutting/topdressing)
For an annual maintenance overseeding, try sowing the same seed mixture used for establishment if it contains a high proportion of easy/fast establishing species
In most cases our dedicated repair/overseeding mixtures will produce a better result.
