Many different cultivars, depends what purpose the ground will be used for. For general use, something hard wearing and possibly shade tolerant will suit you.

The big shed stores have a mix specifically for patch repair which iirc contains fertiliser too - read the box.

Thanks for that. My fault I meant quality wise rather than blend

What's the shroud on the cutting deck made from?

If it's metal of any kind, it'll benefit from hosing out underneath after use - the grass [silage on your case atm ] cuttings which stick there are very acidic and it'll not take long to rust though in some areas, necessitating welding patches on...

Cutting deck is made from aluminium by the looks of it. Jacked it up to see and nothing actually seems to stick - might coat it with Fusso and see what happens lol

Have you cut wet/damp grass with it? I like your idea re Fusso [other designated wheel sealants/waxes are available e.g. Poorboys

I've scorched some small areas on my lawn by overapplication of fertiliser. Is it just a question of regularly pouring on water and hoping the grass will come back or do I need to reseeed. If so how long do I need to wait
