Hydroseeding Denver is very popular in the fall. Hydroseeding products are a popular item that customers purchase in spring, summer, and fall. We have everything you need, from seed mixes to adjuvants. Hydroseeding is often used to aid in corrosion control. This allows for quick grass growth. Hydroseeding can be done correctly and the seeds will germinate within a week. Regular seeding can take up to several weeks. We have 5 great tips for hydroseeding lawns and clients.

Before you start hydroseeding, prepare the soil

Hydroseeding requires that your soil is in good condition. It is important to ensure that your soil is well aerated. The soil can be compacted by foot traffic, construction vehicles, and other activities over the summer. Hardened soil is less likely to germinate seeds so make sure you aerate and till your soil before the ECCO LLC hydroseeding process starts. You can also test the soil to see if it needs any amendments.

Water is always available

Hydroseeding is a process that requires you to water your seedlings three to four times daily. This will ensure that the roots start well. A sprinkler system with an automatic timer can make this process much easier. Make sure that the sprinkler can reach all areas that have been seeded.

Do not drive or walk in an area that has been seeded.

In the first 2 to 3 week, seeds can be extremely fragile so it is important to take extra care and not to walk on them. It can cause bald patches and spotting of grass if the seeds become compacted. A sprinkler can also be a great idea as it will prevent you from walking on grass seed. Sprinklers are able to water the seed and germinate it without any physical contact.

Before the process begins, weed the lawn

It is important to weed your lawn at least one week before you plant the seeds. This will ensure that the roots of any weeds are gone and the new grass is not affected by the chemicals used to spray them. You must remove all roots from weeds that you pull. Otherwise, they will grow back and choke the new grass.

Afterward, fertilize

Although there will likely be fertilizer in your hydroseeding mix, you should still apply high-nitrogen fertilizer approximately one month later. As long as the weather permits, fertilize your grass every 90 days. Hydroseeding in spring can make your grass healthier. You should apply an all-purpose fertilizer once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that it is healthy.
