Create a beautiful lawn with WOLF-Garten
Creating a beautifully dense, green lawn is not always easy. Here you’ll find all important information so that you can lay out your dream lawn.
It's all about the seeds
Grass seeds can be very different. For example, the WOLF-Garten grass seed has a density of 80,000 - 100,000 blades per m², while a normal, cheap grass seed generally only reaches 20,000. That is why lawns laid with grass seed from the supermarket look so bare. You still have a lot of work to do. Grass that only grows in height requires more work to mow and remove in contrast to grass that grows primarily in width. It is also true that grass, which grows in particular in width, leaves no room for weeds. That is why you prefer the high-quality grass seed from WOLF-Garten. Your lawn will be grateful.
This way you can easily lay a new lawn
1. Trench the soil
You start with this in April. First of all you dig the ground with a spade, a fork or with a bottom cutter. Important: Leave the soil alone for 2 to 3 weeks.
2. Loosen and crumble
You only continue after 2 to 3 weeks of rest. You can easily do this groundwork with the tools of Multi-star®. Make sure that the ground temperature is above 10°C.
3. Sow, fertilize, cover
A uniformly laid lawn ensures a smooth grass surface. Therefore sow the grass seed with a WOLF-Garten spreader. This is also suitable for sprinkling salt and sand in the winter. And you can use it all year round for optimum spread of lawn manure. A first fertilizer with starter fertilizer immediately gives a new boost to your newly sown lawn. After sowing and fertilizing, loosely cover the grass seed and fertilizer with peat soil to prevent birds from eating it. Then you spray the surface.
4. Water regularly
Especially in the first 3 weeks after sowing, it is important to keep the soil sufficiently moist. The soil surface must not dry out, as this will also dry out the sensitive grass seed. Spray the lawn daily with water, but at the same time make sure that the soil does not get too wet. Handy: the hose trolley from WOLF-Garten in two versions.
5. First mowing
Mow the lawn for the first time if the grass is 8-10 cm long, but do not mow it shorter than 5 cm. WOLF-Garten has a wide range of lawn mowers.
