Q.Sowing Grass Seeds

Zone North London | Anonymous added on July 4, 2021 | Answered

We have a larges patch of earth street side of our 3 story council block. There is barely any grass but good soil. It gets full sun light. We want the grass to grow around the shrubs and plants. We are not able to put much effort in this, we won’t be turning over the soil. We are buying the grass ourselves. Ideally we want to broadcast seeds and let nature take its course. We are in North London. Can you advise us on type of seed, time of year, and anything else. Thanks
