This blend comprises sand, scrub soil, gypsum, compost, steer manure and ash and is screened to less than 15mm. Although it will drain well and not compact, it still has a high moisture holding capability. It is very workable making it so much easier to produce a level lawn. This lawn starter should be applied under lawn at a depth of 50 to 100 mm thick. It does not contain Kikuyu seed.
