The Essential Guide To Hydroseeding Care & Maintenance In Massachusetts

Mar 4

Hydroseeding your lawn can be just the beginning. It requires some attention to ensure that your hydroseeding company's area is thriving.

Hydroseed must be watered 3 times per day, lasting approximately 10-20 minutes each time to get a total of three waterings per day.


Within two to seven days, the green color is gone.

Watering is best done at the hours of 4:00 AM, 11:00 AM, and 4:00 pm. Do not water after the sun sets.


  • Flexible schedules for watering are feasible due to temperature and seasonal changes. You should water more often and for longer periods in summer; you'll want to water less often and with fewer cycles in the autumn.

  • Hydroseeding Massachusetts must remain wet to ensure that it germinates. The soil doesn't have to be continually flooded with rainwater.

  • You should keep the seed moist but not soggy.

  • You can decrease the amount of water you drink after about 4-6 weeks.

Hydroseed maintenance and care before, during, and afterward

  • Within 10-14 days after planting certain areas will begin to sprout, and the grass is ready to cut within 6-8 weeks. Within 6 to 9 months the lawn will be fully grown.


  • For the first six weeks, you should avoid driving in the newly seeded area as much as you can.


  • Certain areas will do better than others during an initial couple of weeks after hydroseeding company treatment due to the different amounts of shade, sun, and water. It's normal and expected. It's recommended to rake the lawn's edges and manually reseed them over the initial 4 weeks of growth. To get the optimum results, blend fescue, rye, and Kentucky bluegrass.


  • You should apply a starter fertilizer of 18-24-12 on your grass 2 weeks after you hydroseed it. Any outlet could obtain this fertilizer. Three weeks after the first application, you must apply a second fertilizer. It is not recommended to apply any weed control to your lawn for the first 10-12 weeks.


  • As soon as your grass starts to grow it is possible to spot a few weeds, but they are easily controlled by a weed control fertilizer.


  • The first mowing of the lawn is about five weeks after it has been hydroseeded. Your lawn should only be cut using a push mower once the grass is dry to keep the seeds from being damaged by young plants. You can delay the first mow for a few days to allow the soil to dry. Don't leave clippings in huge amounts on the lawn. This could cause damage to any new seed.


  • DO NOT allow the grass to grow too high. It will be difficult to bring your lawn back to its original shape. Do not cut your lawn if you're traveling or are planning to stay away for more than a week. Do not cut your lawn more than one-third of its length in one go. Retaining plants that are overgrown should be done every other day at an elevation of 3 inches.


  • Hydroseeding in Massachusetts could be washed away by rain or other weather conditions. We will spray the area again for 50% less than the original cost.


These are the easy steps that will ensure that your seed germinates and becomes an amazing lawn.

Requirements for Watering


It is essential to ensure that your lawn is regularly watered particularly at night and in the morning. If you need to water the mulch will appear drier and lighter in shade and making it easier to recognize the troublesome areas. For the first 21 days, germinating plants must not allow drying or they'll die.


Care Instructions


To reduce the risk of excessive evaporation it is best to water between dawn & dusk

Water should not pool everywhere. It is recommended to water your lawn manually until the lawn has grown.

Water should be absorbed into the soil for 150 millimeters in order to promote deep roots.

Sprinkler systems can be configured to allow watering for just a few minutes multiple times throughout the day if they're designed to be watered automatically.

Lawn fertilization


Your hydroseeding Massachusetts application will include fertilizer in the mulch, which will give the seedlings the chance to "jump beginning" by giving them the nutrients they need. A portion of the fertilizer is disposed to waste when it evaporates into the soil and young plants. Slow-release fertilizer should be applied monthly to your lawn until it is established. Fertilizers and weed controls should be applied to your lawn four times a year after it has established itself.


Control of Weeds

The new lawn will soon be populated by weeds. After being dispersed by animals, such as birds or the wind, their seeds have been left dormant in the soil for a while.

After your lawn has taken root and been cut a few times, you can make application of a weed control product with a fertilization schedule.


The new lawn is mowed when the grass blades are 40mm in height and the ground has dried. To avoid "scalping" your newly-grown grass blades, it's vital to mow at the correct height. It is not recommended to remove more than one-third of the grass blade. For the first five or six times you trim your grass, use the regular mower prior to switching over to the mulching mower. If your grass is young it is recommended to cut your lawn two times per week.
