The seed recommended for a shady lawn certainly done the job

Fantastic Seeds for Shade & Sun

I have a reasonable sized patch of ground at the bottom corner of my garden which is is enclosed by fencing on two sides and a tall side of a garage on the other. It gets no sun in the morning and only sun during the middle of the day. Come the afternoon it receives no sun because on the west side boundary there is a row of conifers directly behind the fence. An additional issue is that the roots of the conifers take up a lot of moisture from the ground and the acidic pine needles seem to kill of the grass where they fall.
During the winter months I just leave that patch, but come spring I start trying the improve its appearance. I invariably end up reseeding that entire area and I water it, at least twice a week. This year I invested in Garden Lawncare Guy’s seeds specifically designed for sun and shade. Seeds were laid in Marc/April time and I started regularly watering the patch. The seeds germinated quickly and the grass is healthy and strong. I accept that this area will always pose an ongoing battle for me, but I must say I am impressed with the quality of the seeds and very glad that Matt is able to supply customers with grass seed for different areas of the garden. I will have to check and see if he supplies seeds for boggy and wet areas too.

Thanks Matt

All the best,


Great Green Grass

A big YES to this grass seed. I’ve used 2 x bags to improve and thicken my lawn / patch repair. It’s come through strong and is thriving under a big walnut tree. Definitely would recommend. 👍

How to Grow Grass Seed​

1) If required kill all weeds. For mossy lawns use a moss killer. Ideally do this 3-4 weeks before seeding

When the weeds are dead, cut your lawn short and rake out all the debris, moss and thatch.

Apply Seed Start fertiliser first
Apply the seed at 20-35g per square meter (use a higher rate up to 70g if sowing a new lawn)
If possible lightly covering with weed free compost or topsoil will help protect the seeds

Tread or roll the seeds into the soil
If you don’t have a roller use your feet to lightly tread the seed into the soil

TIP : If you have a lawnmower with a rear roller this can be used (turned off) to roll over the seeds.
Make sure its dry so they don’t stick to the roller

Keep moist by light watering during the first weeks of germination.

Depending on the weather this can be 1-3 times a day for a few minutes

Cut the grass when it starts to curl over itself under it’s own weight

After your first cuts apply

In Spring/Summer – Dark Green Lawn
In Autumn – Dark Green Autumn
In Winter – Dark Green Winter

To thicken up the whole area for a long lasting feed
