Hydro-Seed Warranty & Aftercare

Hydro-Seed Specific Aftercare

  • Consistent watering is key! Skipping days of watering will cause hydro-seed to turn into a cardboard like material, stopping any growth.
  • Water daily (early morning/early evening) to keep soil moist but avoid puddling. If we receive a ground-saturating rainfall, you may skip that day.
  • During hot/dry periods, you may water twice a day (early morning is best but also early evening)
  • Once grass shoots appear, you can reduce watering frequency to 2-3 times per week depending on temperatures & rainfall (always recommended early evening)
  • Keep in mind that weather and temperatures play a big part also. Water according to the weather.

Fertilizing Recommendations

  • Be sure to schedule “Follow-up Fertilizing Treatment” 3-4 weeks after initial hydro-seeding application (often priced and scheduled in original hydro-seed quote)
  • DO NOT apply WEED N FEED or any other chemicals until after 3-5 lawn cuts to ensure strong, mature root structure (approx. 10 weeks)
  • Contact your trusted, local Lawn Fertilization company to sign up for a treatment program going forward

Notes & Recommendations

  • You may notice some of the green hydro-mulch on some of the surrounding structures after spraying. Once drying, simply spray off mulch and allow to disintegrate.
  • Mowing: Allow lawn to grow to a slightly longer length than normal (approx. 4-5’’) and then mow on a high mower deck setting. Longer grass will aid in keeping the soil cooler which is ideal for new lawns. When mowing be careful not to leave excessive clippings.
  • Spring time through late summer is when weed seeds germinate! They will germinate with the hydro-seed. After the lawn is established, get signed up on a lawn fertilization program. This is essential to developing a healthy, weed free lawn.
  • Lawns that are hydro-seeded in the fall always fill in lush, thick and mostly weed-free. However, weeds will start to germinate next season, as with any lawn. We recommend setting up a fertilizing program for the the next season.
  • It is recommended to have your lawn rolled the following fall & spring after your service is completed. If you are interested in this additional service, please contact your Account Manager or one of our friendly office staff.
