How do I take care of my lawn after it has been hydroseeded?

Caring for your lawn after hydroseeding is crucial to ensure its successful establishment. Follow these steps to promote healthy growth:

  1. Watering:
    • Keep the soil consistently moist during the germination period.
    • Water two to four times daily, depending on weather conditions.
    • Avoid over-watering, which can lead to fungal issues.
  2. Mowing:
    • Wait until the grass reaches 3 to 4 inches in height before mowing.
    • Set your mower blade to the highest setting initially.
    • Gradually lower the blade height as the grass thickens.
  3. Fertilizing:
    • Apply a balanced fertilizer approximately 30 days after hydroseeding.
    • Follow up with another application in 30 to 45 days.
  4. Weed Control:
    • Monitor for weeds and remove them promptly.
    • Avoid herbicides until the grass is well-established.
  5. Foot Traffic:
    • Minimize walking on the lawn until the grass has fully grown.

Remember, patience and consistent care will reward you with a lush, green lawn! ??
