Frequently asked questions
  • My grass seeds are not germinating. What is wrong?

    If the soil temperature is below 10 ℃, the grass seed will not germinate – that’s nature for you! When the temperature reaches around 10 ℃ or a little higher, the germination process will get going and grass will begin to appear within a couple of weeks.

  • How much grass seed do I need for my lawn?

    To answer this question, we distinguish between two applications: 34g per square metre for sowing a new lawn; 17g per square metre for over-seeding an existing lawn.

  • What is the best time of year to sow grass?

    Spring and early autumn are the best periods. The soil temperature must be at least 10 degrees for the grass seeds to germinate. The soil temperature is not the same as the air temperature and stays cold longer in spring, while the soil temperature stays warm longer in autumn.

  • How should I sow grass seed?

    Calculate the amount of grass seed needed: 34g per square metre to sow a new lawn or 17g per square metre to overseed an existing lawn. Do you have a large lawn? Divide the lawn into smaller parts and calculate the amount of grass seed needed per part. Divide the necessary amount of seed into two. Spread the first part lengthways and the second part widthways. Lightly rake the grass seed into the soil to ensure optimum contact. Roll with a lawn roller (or press the seed into the soil with your shoes). The grass seed makes better contact with the soil and is less likely to be washed away. Water and keep the soil sufficiently moist until the seed sprouts. It is better to water lightly four times a day than to water heavily once a day to avoid the risk of drying out or leaching.

  • How do I resow bald spots in my lawn?

    Don’t give weed a chance and replant bare spots in time as follows: – Mix some soil and compost in a bucket (70/30); – Add the grass seed; – Mix well; – Now scatter the mixture on the desired spot +-1cm thick; – Press down with your feet; – moisten and provide sufficient moisture for 14 days.

  • How long does it take for my grass seeds to germinate?

    The grass seed germinates within 7 to 14 days. These are approximate timings – sometimes the grass seed germinates quicker; occasionally grass seed needs a little longer to fully germinate.

  • I sowed my grass seed over two weeks ago and I still can't see any grass blades. Why?

    Check the conditions: Is the soil warm enough? Did the grass seed make sufficient soil contact? Have you kept the soil sufficiently moist? Direct soil contact is needed. If there’s a layer of old organic material on the top layer of the soil, the seed might struggle to germinate. Can you see the grass seed still lying scattered around the lawn or has it been washed away? If you cannot identify the cause, we will be happy to go over the options with you. Contact us for personal advice!

  • What can I do about birds eating my grass seeds?

    Usually the damage is limited, but in a very bird-rich garden, place prickers with pieces of silver foil attached to them to scare the birds away.

  • I've sown my lawn. When can I walk on it?

    When the grass seeds germinates you should not walk on it for 14 days, as young grass bruises quickly and does not recover.

  • How long can my grass seeds be kept after opening?

    After opening, grass seed lasts at least another year if stored in a dark and dry place.

Buying grass seed at MOOWY

There are various ways to establish a beautiful lawn. You can purchase grass seed and sow a lawn or opt to have turf laid. Perhaps you prefer minimal maintenance and choose to install artificial grass. If sowing grass seed is your preference, then MOOWY is the right place for you.

In our assortment, you’ll find various types of grass seed, all of the highest quality. Below, we’ll explain when to sow, how to sow effectively, and which type of grass seed suits your needs best.

Why buy MOOWY’s grass seed?

Simple: cheap grass seed leads to weak results with a low germination rate. At MOOWY, premium quality takes precedence, resulting in optimal germination rates under normal conditions.

Our grass seed utilises a thoughtful mix of perennial ryegrass, red fescue, and creeping bentgrass, delivering stunning results while maintaining an easy-to-care-for lawn, even without specialised knowledge.

How much grass seed do you need?

Choose the right grass seed that aligns with your lawn’s needs. Read above to understand the differences between sports and play lawns, shaded lawns, and ornamental lawns.

When making a purchase, it’s essential to focus on quality and ensure the presence of ‘perennials’ for a sustainable result. Our advice is to use 17 grams of grass seed per square meter. For establishing a new lawn, you’ll need double the amount.

Buying grass seed for seeding vs. overseeding

Whether you’re seeding a new lawn or overseeding bare patches, the choice of grass seed is crucial. Understand the differences between sports and play lawns, shaded lawns, and ornamental lawns, and pay attention to quality when making a purchase.

For overseeding, we recommend 17 grams of grass seed per square meter, while for seeding a new lawn, you’ll need double the amount.

How long does grass seed keep for?

How long grass seed will keep depends largely on whether the package has been opened before and the storage conditions.

Unopened bags of seed will generally be about as strong as a new bag after two years. Many bags also often state that grass seed has a shelf life of only two years. After this period, grass seed can still be of good quality if kept dry and cool.

Opened packages will keep for at least a year, but germination decreases after this period. Environment is crucial; store grass seed cool, dark, and dry in its original packaging.

Test germination by putting grass seed between damp toilet paper and placing it on the windowsill. If more than 80% germinates within two to three weeks, it is normal; less indicates that the germination rate has decreased and the grass seed has less shelf life.

What to look for when buying grass seed

If you’re looking to order grass seed, there are several important points to consider.

The Grass Mixture

Check the packaging to see which types of grass are present in the mixture. Depending on the application, grass seed contains different types of grass, such as perennial ryegrass, creeping bentgrass, Italian ryegrass, fine fescue, or red fescue.

The Quality

There is a significant difference in the quality of grass seed, reflected in germination rates, i.e., the percentage of grass seeds that actually sprout. Cheaper lawn seed often have a shorter lifespan, sometimes only one season. That’s why we always recommend investing in the best grass seed.

The Packaging

When purchasing grass seed, the packaging is crucial. If you don’t use all the seeds at once, it’s essential to store the grass seed without a loss of germination or mold formation. That’s why all our packaging comes with a sealing mechanism.

When and how to sow grass?

Sowing grass can be done virtually all year round, but the ideal period extends from February to October, provided the soil temperature is at least 10°C. In autumn, you benefit from the still-warm soil of summer, while spring is a suitable time, albeit with more focus on leaf development than root growth.

Suitable conditions

Besides the optimal sowing time, there are some essential considerations for successful grass sowing.

Soil temperature

The germination process of grass seed starts at a soil temperature of 10°C. Make sure the daytime temperature exceeds this threshold and measure the soil temperature at about 3 cm depth with a thermometer.

Moisture in the soil

For optimal grass seed uptake, the soil should be sufficiently moist. In dry conditions, a thorough watering the evening before sowing is necessary.

Contact between grass seed and soil

Good adhesion between grass seed and soil is crucial. Lightly rake the seed when sowing and then use a garden roller to press it down. Indeed, missing soil contact results in a lack of germination.

Loosening compact soil

As grass does not thrive on hard, compact soil, it is important to rake or aerate it first. Loosening compact soil promotes healthy germination and growth, which is the basis for a lush lawn.

Sowing Grass – Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Remove weeds and stones.
  2. Plow and level the ground.
  3. Ensure the soil is adequately moist.
  4. Sow by hand or using a spreader.
  5. Distribute evenly over the ground.
  6. Lightly rake.
  7. Roll with a lawn roller.
  8. Lightly water and keep moist until germination.
