We’ve got approx 60sq m of area that we have created after building a retaining wall. We filled it with broken up rotten rock and loose soil about 6mths ago. It’s packed down and settled and we want to plant grass seed. Good sun in area and typical Welly rainfall. Doesn’t have to be hard wearing. Wondering what to plant and how much. Any advice on how to break soil up appreciated. Access to section is tricky as is set down approx 10metres from road (stairs mainly).

A good grass seed to sow is Rye or a tall fescue (a bit tougher). Getting your drainage and your base sorted is essential for any successful lawn. Get yourself a little seed spreader from a hire centre or buy a hand- wound seed sower. Yates have a couple of hardwearing lawn seed blends such as ‘Tough and hardwearing’ and Yates ‘Survivor’. Follow the directions on the packet as to have much coverage per square you need. Hire a rotary hoe from a hire centre to help break up soil, this is a hand held machine, access will therefore not be an issue.
