How to use

New lawn seeding or repairing bald spots

  1. Loosen the soil bed to a depth of 7 cm (3 in). Rake and remove debris and rocks. Cover with C-I-L® Enriched Lawn Soil for a nutrient-rich planting medium.
  2.  Apply evenly to the prepared area with a spreader or by hand.
  3. Lightly rake and tamp to make sure the seed has contact with the soil.
  4. Lightly water daily to keep the seed moist until established.


  1. Mow your lawn on a low setting.
  2. Loosen surface soil using a rake to clear debris and dead grass.
  3. Top with C-I-L® Enriched Lawn Soil for a nutrient-rich planting medium.
  4. Apply following above instructions.

When to apply

Apply in mid-spring when soil temperatures warm up or mid-August to late September. Optimal germination occurs between 10 °C and 25 °C. Cool spring weather and freezing temperatures will delay germination and growth. 



Keep out of the reach of children and pets. 


  • Keep well-sealed.
