How to care for your newly hydroseeded lawn

Once your lawn has been hydroseeded, the work has just begun. To turn your newly hydroseeded area into a beautiful, healthy, lush green lawn it is going to need some TLC.

Watering instructions
- Hydroseed should be watered 3 times per day for approximately 10 minutes per watering cycle.
- The ideal times are 4:00AM, 11:00AM & 4:00PM.
- You may increase the watering slightly for the hot summer months & decrease for the cooler fall months at your discretion.
- The hydroseed needs to remain moist in order to germinate properly.
- DO NOT create pools of water on your lawn, just keep the seed constantly damp & moist.
- After 3-5 weeks you may begin to scale back the watering at your discretion.

The first mowing will be done 4-6 weeks after the lawn was hydroseeded. It is recommended that your lawn is mowed with a push mower to do as little damage as possible to the new seedlings. The clippings should be left behind…however DO NOT leave any clumps sitting on the lawn, as they will damage the new seed.

Keep as much traffic as possible off of the newly seeded areas.
After you mow the first time, it is highly recommended that you apply an 18-24-12 starter fertilizer to the lawn. 3 weeks after that application you can follow up with an additional starter fertilizer application. Do not apply any weed control to the lawn for the first 12-16 weeks. You may get some weeds in your lawn, they can be taken care of with a weed control fertilizer once the lawn begins to mature.
