Lawn Care: Questions & Answers

Q. I want to lay a new lawn in March. How do I know what quantity of seed I need?

A. Your seed supplier or the packaging should tell you but generally, you need: General purpose or utility turf (with ryegrass): 15-20g per sq m (½oz per sq yd); General purpose ornamental turf: 20-25g per sq m  (¾oz per sq yd); High-quality ornamental turf: 30g per sq m  (1oz per sq yd).
