In our practical test, we sowed the seed mixture. For this we have followed the recommended specifications in the instructions. First, the subsoil for the new seeding was prepared (see 1st picture). We cleared the ground of weeds and loosened it up with a rake. We then scattered the seeds on the ground and carefully worked them into the loose soil with a rake so that the lawn seeds were lightly covered with soil.

Finally, the area was watered regularly for days. For our test, we decided not to fertilize the test area, so that the growth of the seeds is not influenced by additives.

This enabled us to assess the seeds more accurately.

It was particularly noticeable that the seeds were very fast started to germinate. Because already after 7 days you could clearly see young seedlings (see 2nd picture).

The lawn is ready within 3-4 weeks extremely tight and juicy green grown (see 4th picture). At this point the grass was already so high that it could be cut for the first time.

A particularly positive aspect is that the lawn is hard-wearing, as it quickly straightens up again after being stepped on.
