Maintaining a Hydroseeded Lawn

We will use a tested, high quality, certified turf mix. Germination time depends on weather conditions, temperature and the amount of watering. Usually grass will be visible in 5-7 days, a few days slower in cold weather.

Care and Watering

Successful seed germination depends on a few days of special care. To assure proper germination, water regularly. Two times a day in warm weather is recommended. Keeping the yard moist will maximize seed germination. You may walk on the surface when watering, being careful not to disturb the mulch mat. By keeping your new seedlings from drying out, you protect the beginning of a lawn that will make your neighbors green with envy.

Mowing & Fertiliztion

Mow the grass approximately 3 weeks after seeding. Mowing stimulates growth and thickness. Set the mower high at first then gradually lower. Try to never cut more then 1/3 of the total grass blade length at a time. Keep blades sharpened, as dull blades will pull out seedlings. First mowing should be when grass reaches about 3".

You will want to fertilize 3 - 4 weeks after hydroseeding has been applied. Do not use any herbicides until at least 3 solid mowings.
