We sowed a new lawn 2 weeks ago today and it slow enough to sprout. it had very dry spells but we watered it all throughout. Im just wondering how long is the usual germination time?

Grass is always slow in dry conditions and watering does not make much of a difference as the water moves the seeds and it is likley to be insufficient in any case, just damping the surface for a few hours.

Unless the seed was dead to start with, it should be showing by now to some extent. Test some, if you have any, on damp tissue on a saucer in the window sill.
