For shady conditions with good drought resistance
Available in 250gm, 500gm, 1.5kg and 5kg cartons, also in 10kg bags.
Shady Place is specially formulated to produce an excellent lawn under shady conditions. To do this, different types of Fescues and Browntop Bent are used due to their higher tolerance of shade than mixtures with Perennial Ryegrass. Shady Place is fine and dense will benefit from a higher cut to help it grow in low light.
It is suitable for areas in shade from trees, fences, hedges and walls and will tolerate dry and damp conditions.

SeedBooster is an innovative two in one seed coating developed for the professional turf market. Each seed is wrapped in its own parcel of fast and slow release fertiliser, the seed germinates sooner and establishes faster, resulting in up to 30% more grass and a denser lawn than by sowing seed and fertiliser separately. This makes it particularly effective when used on slower to establish, finer grasses (such as those in Shady Place or Luxury Lawn) and for improving existing lawns with Johnsons Lawn Thickener. SeedBooster gives you:
- 30% More Grass
- Coats Seeds with Nitrogen
- Faster Germination and Establishment
- Child, Pet and Environmentally Friendly
- Harmlessly Deters Birds
- A New, Energised Lawn

Young grass will appear within 7-14 days under good growing conditions but will take longer if the ground is cold. For best results, sow between March and October.
Sowing a new lawn step by step guide:
1. Remove weeds, stones and rubbish before sowing. Dig to a depth of 15-22cm (6-9in). Level and firm seed bed by raking then treading or light rolling.
2. If possible, leave seed bed for a few weeks and then destroy any weeds.
3. Moisten the ground, mix the seed and then scatter evenly. Sow the seed at a rate of 35g per sq. metre (1 ¼ ozs per sq yard) half from left to right, then half from top to bottom for each section. Rake lightly and firm in seed by treading or light rolling.
4. In case of dry weather use a fine spray to keep seed bed constantly moist.
Overseeding an existing lawn step by step guide:
1. Mow the lawn short then using a spring tine rake or scarifier remove the layers of dead grass or thatch. If possible, spike lawn with a hollow tine fork and brush in some topsoil to relieve any compacted areas.
2. Moisten the ground, mix the seed and then sow the seed at a rate of 25g per sq. metre (¾ ozs per sq yard), scattering evenly. Alternatively, the seed can be mixed with some topsoil and sown by hand to aid distribution and moisture retention.
3. Firm in the seed by treading or light rolling. In case of dry weather use a fine spray to keep seed bed constantly moist.
4. Ideally do not mow existing grass until new grass is growing. If a mow is necessary, raise the cutting height.
