What is HydroSeeding?
Hydroseeding is the simple procedure of applying grass
seed, fertilizer, hydromulch and water in one
liquefied application. Various soil amendments and
soil stabilizers may also be used in the mixture
depending on the needs of the environment.
What type of grass seed is used in HydroSeeding?
Most any type of grass seed can be used in
Hydroseeding, factors such as climate conditions will
be the determining factor as to which grass type is
recommended. A Horticultural center or County
Agricultural agent can tell you what turf seeds
flourish best in your climate.
Why is the green color gone from my HydroSeeded lawn?
The green dye that was present during the initial
application will fade and disappear in as few as 2
days in some cases and in other instances it may last
weeks. The colorant has no bearing on the quality of
the hydroseed or the impression that the hydroseeded
lawn has washed away.
How much should I water my HydroSeeded lawn?
Initially water is essential to the development of a
strong root system in your hydroseeded lawn. Newly
hydroseeded lawns should be watered as much as 2-3
times a day. Special care should be taken to ensure
that the lawn is NOT saturated during watering and
puddles DO NOT form on the lawn. An irrigation system
or handheld garden hose is often the best method of
watering your lawn. The goal is to have a consistently
moist area for the best germination results.
When should I fertilize my HydroSeeded lawn?
This will often vary depending on the type of grass
seed used, condition of the soil and recommended
fertilizer types for your climate. A common practice
is to apply a nitrogen rich fertilizer soon after the
first mowing has been done. Weeks 4-6 are common
fertilizing times. When in doubt, an Expert should be
consulted as improper fertilization could cause severe
damage to your lawn.
Can I walk on the HydroSeed once it is applied?
Only as much as is absolutely necessary. Heavy traffic
on a newly seeded lawn can permanently damage the new
grass. Walking on a freshly hydroseeded lawn can leave
depressions in the lawn and in some cases cause bare
spots to form.
How soon will I have grass?
Often times hydroseeded lawns will begin to germinate
is as little as 5-7 days. Most grass types will take
between 3-4 weeks to fill in and depending on how
often the lawn is watered, and the type of grass seed
used, it can take up to as much as 8 weeks to see
When should I first mow my HydroSeeded lawn?

recommended once the lawn reaches 3-4 inches in
height. The 1/3rd rule is a good guideline, You should
never remove more than 1/3rd of the grass blade at one

your new lawn is a very sharp mower blade. Try to
avoid sharp turns when mowing a fresh lawn so as to
avoid tearing the grass out with your tires.
Is HydroSeeding better than sod?
Having your lawn sodded will give you a picture
perfect lawn in as little as one day. Hydroseeding may
take a few weeks to see your lawn fully develop.
Hydroseeding is also 60%-75% less expensive than the
costly application of sod. As to which lawn looks
better, aftercare and attention to your investment
will ultimately determine what your results are with
