Here is a list of common problems we often see with hydroseed failing.
> Lack of water
> Lack of sunlight
> No after care
Make sure you follow all instructions carefully that we left with you after we hydroseeded.
Your new lawn needs to stay as moist as possible for the first 3-4 weeks. Even though you see some grass there are many seeds that still have not germinated. Different types of seeds germinate at different times. If your lawn is thinner in the direct sunlight compared to a shadier area you need to compensate with more water in the sunnier areas.
Hydroseed will grow in many conditions but over time if there is not enough sunlight your lawn will deteriorate. We highly recommend 3-4 hours of filtered sunlight to have a quality lawn. You may need to cut back some tree limbs to let more light through. Moss growth is a good indicator of lack of light.
Always Green, Inc. uses a tackifier (glue) to bond all the materials we are applying to the soil. Once the application is sprayed it will need to dry completely before it is watered. This application will tolerate a moderate rain storm. If there is torrential rain we can not guarantee there will not be a wash out. In most cases after a heavy rain it will look like the green mulch has washed away but usually it is just the green dye that has washed out. There are usually a lot of seeds under the dirt you can't see and over time these areas will fill in. If your lawn needs to be re-sprayed because of a washout Always Green, Inc. will work to correct the problem at a nominal fee.
Your lawn needs to be mowed at least 3 times before you should allow foot traffic, pets and playing on the lawn. Keep all traffic to a minimum during this important time. It is ok to walk on the lawn to water but just be careful not to walk in the same areas all the time.
Your lawn may cast a yellowing appearance after about a month. The reason for this is your new lawn is starving for nitrogen. Nitrogen is the part of fertilizer that gives your lawn its color and top growth. Once your lawn is fertilized for the first time you will see a surge in growth and color. Be sure to water the fertilizer in thoroughly. DO NOT USE WEED KILLER!
We hope the information has above has helped you resolve your problem. If it has not please contact us and let us know what is going on with your lawn. We recommend e-mailing us with pictures if possible for a faster resolution.
