Watering requirements


Maintaining a well-watered lawn in all seasons is a must, especially in the morning and during the evening. When watering is required, the mulch will appear dry and lighter in color, making it easier to spot the troublesome areas. During the first 21 days, germinating plants cannot be allowed to dry out, or else they'll die.


Care Instructions


It's recommended to drink between dusk and dawn to avoid excessive evaporation from the sun.

The water shouldn't droop anywhere. It is best to wash the lawn manually until it is established.

Water should be sucked into the soil for 150 millimeters for deep roots.

Sprinkler systems can be set up to water multiple times per day for a limited period of time when they aren't yet watering automatically.


Lawn fertilization


Your Hydroseeding Massachusetts application contains fertilizer in the mulch, which gives seedlings a "jump start" by providing them with the nutrients they need. However, some fertilizer is lost to evaporation in the soil and young plants. Slow-release fertilizers should be applied every month to your lawn till it is established. Fertilizers and weed killers must be applied to your lawn every four weeks during the year once your lawn is established.

Control of Weeds

The weeds will show up on your new lawn at some point. After animals scattered them, like birds or the wind, their seeds remained in the soil, dormant for many years.

After your lawn has been established and mowed numerous times, you are able to apply a weed control product as part of a fertilization program.



The new lawn is mowed when the grass blades exceed 40mm high, and the soil has dried. Cutting at the correct size is essential to keep from "scalping" the new grass blades. At most, you should take off a third of your grass blade. For the first five to six times you cut your grass, you should use a standard mower prior to changing to a mulching mower. In the summer and spring months, the best time to cut your lawn is at least twice per week if the grass is too high.
