How to choose the best grass seed

The best grass seed for your lawn will be a mixture of seeds that are fit for purpose, and ‘do what they say on the tin’ or in this case – the bag!

At icanlawn.com, we’ve already selected the best seeds and blended them together to create five essential lawn mixes.

Let’s start with our general grass seed mix for a lawn that gets a lot of use – from entertaining to kids and pets playing on the lawn. But just because your lawn puts up with a lot, doesn't mean it should look like it does!

Our Everyday Dream Lawn is a multi-purpose mix which can handle all that you throw at it - and still look great.

If you have a new build home, you may find that your lawn struggles between seasons. Clay soils that are typical in new builds require specialist seeds, meaning off the shelf seed just won’t cut it.

Our New Build Dream Lawn is packed with all the right seeds to combat your clay soils, so you can finally tick ‘lawn’ off your snag list!

If your lawn is looking patchy and worse for wear from all the rough and tumble from your furry friends, swap it for our Tough Stuff Lush Lawn.

This mix offers the best of both worlds as it will withstand every skid, scrape and scuffle, but you’ll also end up with the lushest lawn on the street!

Some lawns don’t get a lot of use and are purely for show. To produce this kind of showstopper, you’ll need a mix that contains the finest grass seed.

A-List Luxury Lawn is a super luxurious mix and because of this, it'll need the VIP treatment. If you want the standout stripes seen at stately homes from Wick to Windsor, getting on the A-List - just got easier!

Let’s talk about garden shade – sometimes this will be light shade caused by trees that can create patchiness, or slightly heavier shade that prevents the full growth of grass.

Our Shade Supreme Lawn contains grass seeds that simply love a spot in the shade, so you can sit back and relax in the sun!

If more than one of our mixes matches your needs, you can pair them up to create your ideal lawn.

If you’re still not sure what seed you need for your lawn, you can read our guide here, or drop us an email and we will happily help you choose the best grass seed.
