WD Yards hydroseed is a mixture of mulch, fertilizer, seed and tacifier all mixed up in slurry that is sprayed onto your yard. The fertilizer in the mix will help start the seed to germinate and feed the new young lawn. The mulch in our hydroseed is a mixture of ground wood and paper. The mulch protects against soil erosion and assists in keeping the seed moist between waterings.
WD Yards can supply a variety of seed depending on your preferences and the soil in your area. Kentucky Bluegrass and Fescue are the most common choices. WD Yards’ custom bluegrass is a blend of five different bluegrasses mixed together to promote a hardy and disease resistant lawn. The Fescue family of grasses is better suited for salty soils. WD Yards will help in determining what type of seed is best for your lawn.
Water is the most important part of the hydroseeding process. The hydroseeded lawn must be kept moist. The first watering can be done anytime after the hydroseeding is completed. The water should reach a depth of two inches into the soil. The key is to water frequently and lightly up to five or six time per day.
Once you begin to water the seed will start to germinate in a short period of time depending on seed type and soil temperature. The first mowing should occur about four weeks after planting. The yard is ready for moderate use around the seventh week, and full use after the ninth week. After you have mowed your lawn 3-4 times, call WD YARDS for a follow up application of fertilizing and weed control at no additional charge.
