lawn is easy. All the grass requires is sunlight, water and nutrition.
By providing the water and nutrition at the correct time you will have

FIRST 3 WEEKS ARE IMPORTANT
The Hydroseed will need to set for 24 hours. After 24 hours it is time
to water. Keep the lawn moist preferably by a light sprinkling twice
a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening, roughly for about
20 - 30 minutes each time. If it is very hot and dry out you may need
to water more often. Do not let the lawn get mucky. Only the top 2 inches
needs to be kept moist. Continue this process until the first cutting.
After the first cutting you can gradually reduce the frequency of watering
and increase the duration. A finished lawn requires roughly one inch
of water a week either from Mother Nature or from irrigation.
MUCH AREA TO WATER
If there is too much area to water - Don’t worry. Mother Nature
will do the work. All grass seed needs to grow is seven wet days to
get started plus a temperature above twelve degrees Celsius. Grass seed
will lay dormant for a long time. The Hydroseed mixture will hold the
seed and fertilizer in place until this happens.
A great time to
seed is in the fall. If you are interested in fall seeding please call
us for more information.
The Hydroseed mixture included a top quality fertilizer. This fertilization
period is important to establish the lawn. A fertilization program should
be started but no weed killer of any kind should be used for the two
The lawn should be mowed as soon as the grass reaches three inches in
height. After that, it is best if you keep your lawn at a height of
three to three and half inches in height for proper root establishment.
Do not delay in
mowing as it will inhibit the germination of slower grass seeds ad will
be detrimental in the long run. You should mow your lawn often and use
sharp blades on your mower. Dull blades might damage the lawn.
You lawn will develop weeds. These weeds will come from birds, the wind
or from within the soil. When your lawn is properly watered, mowed and
fertilized the grass will grow in healthy and will provide too much
competition for the weeds to get established.
Because Hydroseeding does require the weather to cooperate some-what
we cannot warranty any damages caused by severe weather conditions.
