Hydroseeding Pros- Hydroseeding Care Instructions
After care by property owner is critical for proper results. Seed and materials used are only the best on
the market, we do not use subpar materials and our hydroseeding process is refined for best results.
Any issue that arises after Hydroseeding Pros complete the hydroseeding process is outside our control.
(Weather: acts of god, proper watering, standing water, proper soil nutrients, traffic on hydroseeding
human or animals etc)
The establishment of your new lawn requires water. A new lawn should be watered 2-3 times each day
for the first 2 – 2 1⁄2 weeks, with a watering cycle of normally 10 to 15 minutes each watering is sufficient.
The lawn should be kept lightly damp and water should NOT RUN or PUDDLE on the lawn. Watch the
weather, and adjust your watering to keep the mulch lightly damp, NOT soaking wet and muddy. After
the first mowing then water more heavily just once a day. Do not water late in the evening, lawn must
dry before sunset or risk of fungus growing on lawn.
Don’t be in a hurry to cut your lawn the first time. Give the roots time to take hold. As soon as the new
lawn is 3 inches high it is time for the first cut. Be sure your mower blade is sharp. This will prevent the
grass from tearing and being pulled out by the roots. Torn or ripped grass is susceptible to attack by
disease. Subsequent cuttings should be done often and no more than 1/3 of the grass should be cut off
at one time. For the first couple of cuts do not collect the grass clippings. Use your mulching option on
your mower so to allow the clipping to fall into your new lawn and be used as mulching compost
We apply a high quality fertilizer, with a high potassium level, during the initial hydroseeding process to
help your new lawn start growing and establish a strong root base. Your new lawn should be fertilized,
with a high nitrogen fertilizer, again in about 4 weeks. Fertilizing too early will burn the grass, and
possibly kill the new lawn. You will know it is time to fertilize, if the new lawn has a light green color. The
new lawn should then be re-fertilized about every 6 to 8 weeks through the summer.
DO NOT use weed control products on new young grass. The grass at this stage may react severely to
the chemicals and die. All soil contains weed seeds, which will come up after the lawn has been planted.
Weeds germinate quicker than grass seed therefore, do not be concerned when weeds appear. As the
grass becomes established, many weeds cannot survive the grass root system and will be choked out.
The few that might remain can be controlled and eliminated as part of your normal fertilizing process.
Ask your nearest garden center to recommend the appropriate weed & feed product. Do not put
fertilizer with a Weed Killer on your new lawn until it is at least 3 months old.
