How soon can I sow a new lawn? My rural garden is in County Laois. It is fairly well drained, and the area for sowing is sheltered on the south-east side only.
Wait until the soil is dry enough to till and then rake it level and sow. Work in some general fertilizer first and then sow.
Well-drained soil will dry out more quickly for sowing. Make sure that the soil has settled and is level before sowing, or it will settle in humps and hollows.
