Hydroseeding Before and After Care

Sep 30

Hydroseeding can be an economical way to get grass started. Before and following the hydroseeding CT treatment, proper preparation and attention to detail is essential before and after hydroseeding CT treatment.

Plan the space

Get rid of any large boulders or debris from the area that you are planning to seed before it. To create a rough slope, topsoil should be evenly distributed, ranging from 8 to 10 inches deep. Be sure water drains from your house and structures by filling in the low spots. Using a tiller is a must if your soil is compacted. The pores between soil particles are tiny in compacted soil, hindering the flow of water, oxygen, and minerals.

Do a soil investigation.

Check out the soil and consider conducting a soil study. Sand, silt, and clay form the bulk of soil. In sandy soil, water and air can flow easily. However, they also dry fast. Clay soils can cause roots to become dehydrated due to the slow rate of movement and the lack of water. The soil can be improved by organic matter (compost) or clay or sandy soils. Top Spray can offer soil amendments and pH adjustments based on the soil study findings.

If necessary, make amends to the soil.

After the rough grade has been coated with organic matter and tilled into place, it should be considered the final grade. To get the surface flat, you'll have to lift it out or use harrows. The soil should not be too compact or loose. For more information about your Hydroseeding CT application, Please contact us.


Awaiting Your Response

Give your newly sown grass at least 24 hours for it to dry. The drying process can cause the hydro-mulch's tackifier (glue) to stick to the soil. If you don't want to damage your lawn recently seeded, do not drive or walk immediately on it.


After 24 hours, commence your watering regimen. Maintain the newly-seeded lawn moist as much as possible to ensure its success.


Hydroseeding: Do you need to apply water?

Plan for Watering

Beginning with the third week, it is to keep in mind that the seedlings must always remain moist but not soggy wet. After sprouting, if the seed becomes dry, it will go to seed and die. The size of grass, the climate, season, soil type, and terrain determine how much water is required to keep an aesthetically healthy lawn. The most beneficial results are achieved through frequent watering and shorter periods (3-6 times a day, depending on the weather). Be sure to keep the area damp. The drier the area, the darker it will turn green or brown. If there is excessive water in one location or for a long time, it is possible for the mulch and seed to be damaged.

Weeks 3 through 5 3 to 5: Water your lawn for longer periods and less frequently. This will encourage deep root growth and healthier grass plants. We'll reduce this amount of water from 6 to 3 times per week.




It's time to mow your lawn once it is three and a half inches. You should cut only the top third of your lawn when you mow. Keep your blades sharp and keep them cutting frequently. Mowing helps to create tillers (branching out at the bottom of the plant). A higher level of tillering will mean that your lawn is growing faster.



For healthy growth of your hydroseeding CT grass, it is important to fertilize it. Make use of a spreader that can apply an evenly-sized, granular fertilizer once the grass has reached at least 2 inches in height. This should take between 3 and four weeks. The application rate is 4.5 kgs/100m2 for either 16-16-16 or 18-10-10. After the lawn has grown, fertilizer must be applied between four and five times per year, with a 21-7-14 mix.


Control of Weeds

Use the Weed Killer after your lawn is mowed five more times. It is not uncommon for new Hydroseeding CTlawns in the spring to produce weeds. On the ground, most of these are annuals. Once their life cycle concludes in autumn, regular mowing is sufficient to keep them in control.
