If you’re tired of looking at barren areas on your property and want a reliable solution for thick, rich grass that reduces erosion, too, consider hydroseeding! It’s important to understand the basics of application to ensure you get the results you want, and why this type of lawn is best installed from around April through October.
Winter is Often Too Cold
With some exceptions, the specialized formula of grass seed and fertilizer needs temperatures that are–and will stay–well above freezing to germinate. Even if weather conditions are acceptable for a week or so because of a relatively warm spell, you can expect the germination process to be much slower outside of the ideal growing season for grass.
Grass Doesn’t Typically Grow During the Winter
Grass, like most other landscaping plants, trees and shrubs, becomes dormant in fall. Any grass seed application that occurs during this time will probably need to be repeated in the spring, as winter precipitation may wash it away before it germinates.
The Soil Gets Too Cold
Even if air temperatures reach the 40s or 50s consistently, the temperature of the soil has a big influence on whether grass germinates successfully. Once the soil is too cold, the roots won’t grow or if they do, it won’t be strong and deep enough to help reduce erosion.
