How to use

Munns Pixie Sun 'N Shade Lawn Seed is easy to use. See below our recommended directions for application on new lawns and over sow. 

Directions for new lawns

  • Soil is to be evenly graded, well drained and level.
  • Lightly rake the area one way to create furrows. Mix the lawn seed with Munns Superstart Lawn Starter Fertiliser and broadcast evenly over the area. Lightly rake in the opposite direction.
  • Keep the top 1cm of soil moist at all times during germination using a fine mist spray.
  • Mowing your new lawn should take place at approximately 4 - 5 weeks after fertilising when seedlings are about 5 – 6cm high. Remove only 1cm from the tips. After 5 – 6 weeks, fertilise your new lawn with Munns Golf Course Green Lawn Fertiliser.
  • The most common failure in raising a new lawn from seed is lack of moisture during the germination period. Munns have addressed this problem by mixing their unique Weta-Lawn with their seed.

Directions for over sow

  • Cut existing lawn down close.
  • Mix seed with Munns Superstart Lawn Starter Fertiliser and broadcast evenly over the given area.
  • Then lightly top dress with more than 1cm of sandy loam. This enables seed soil contact for better germination. 
  • Keep the top 1cm of soil moist at all times during germination using a fine mist spray.
