How to use GroRight® Lawn Establishment Fertiliser

A good root structure is important for a healthy lawn, so before laying turf or sowing lawn seed, it helps to make sure there is a good supply of the correct nutrients available with an application of Rolawn’s GroRight Lawn Establishment Fertiliser.

Formulated using a slow release technology, which is key for promoting all round plant strength, it is suitable for all soil types and for any turf or seed. The technical specification also makes it suitable for use as a top feed, to replenish the nutrients in an established lawn.

Applying GroRight Lawn Establishment Fertiliser as a pre-turfing and pre-seeding fertiliser

  • Prepare the soil by rotovating and raking and removing all debris, weeds and large stones. 
  • Spread GroRight Lawn Establishment Fertiliser by hand or with a spreader at the recommended rate of 40g per m².
  • Rake into the top 25mm of the soil so that the majority of the granules are not visible.
  • Turf can be laid or seed sown immediately after application of GroRight Lawn Establishment Fertiliser but should be completed within 48 hours.
  • Newly-laid turf must be watered well. Seed beds must be kept moist.
