Hydroseeding is cost-effective, quick and efficient, making it an optimal choice for any homeowner. When you choose hydroseeding, there are a few guidelines you can follow to ensure you’re getting the most out of hydroseeding your lawn.
Prep the Soil
Your soil must be properly prepared and aerated before hydroseeding can begin. Areas with heavy foot or vehicle traffic create hardened soil. These conditions make it more difficult for seeds to germinate. Tilling the soil can help rectify this problem. At least a week before seeding, you’ll also want to weed your lawn. You can either use spray or pull the weeds by hand. If you do decide to pull by hand, you’ll want to make sure you get the entirety of the roots.
Treat Your Lawn With Care
While this goes without saying, treating your lawn with respect will lead to the best results. This includes not walking or driving on the seeded area. You can also set up a sprinkler system to shelter the seeds and allow them to germinate with plenty of moisture.
Practice Proper Aftercare
After hydroseeding, the seedlings require water 3-4 times a day. You can water them manually or use a sprinkler. About a month after treatment and every 90 days thereafter, you should apply a fertilizer high in nitrogen to the hydroseeded area. You can even apply fertilizer more frequently to achieve the healthiest grass possible.
