Maintaining a Hydro Seeded Lawn
Typical Germination Times
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
Successful seed germination depends on a few days of special
care. To assure proper germination, water regularly, 2-3 times a
day in warm weather (less if weather is mild). 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 insure the beginning of a lawn that will
make your neighbors green with envy.
Mow the grass approximately 3 weeks after seeding. Mowing
stimulates growth and thickness. Set the mower high at first, and then
Fertilize one month after seeding using a nitrogen type
fertilizer. Think green, think organic. Your job is to feed the soil,
the life in your soils will then work hard for you. Great results can be
achieved by using organic products. Do not use products that will work
against the biology.
Consider aerating your lawn once a year and spreading a light layer of
fine compost over the grass. Use just enough compost to go through the
grass blades, but not to completely cover them up… ¼” +/- usually works
well. This method will help to build the soils and enrich the overall
rooting zone of the grass.
