Watering Instructions

  • May - June: The first three to four weeks after hydroseed is applied.

    48 minutes to 1 hour of watering per day, broken up into 12 to 15 minutes of run time/zone, four times a day

  • Late June - July: The first three to four weeks after hydroseed is applied.

    An hour of watering per day, broken up into 15 minutes of run time/zone, four times a day

  • August - September: The first three to four weeks after hydroseed is applied.

    48 minutes to 1 hour of watering per day, broken up into 12 to 15 minutes of run time/zone, four times a day

  • October - November: The first three to four weeks after hydroseed is applied.

    Due to various watering conditions and cool temperatures, it’s ideal to manually water as needed during the first three to four weeks. In most cases, when the hydro mulch is kept moist in fertile soil, a new seed has time to establish a root base before winter.

Things to Remember Once a New Lawn Is Established

  • One hour of watering per day is a good rule of thumb.

  • It is best to water in the mornings, as this allows the water to penetrate into the ground for stronger root growth of new and mature grass.

  • During hot and humid times of the year, you may need to increase watering times and split cycles into both morning and evenings.

  • It is recommended for the topsoil to be at least three to four inches thick.

  • It is always recommended to apply hydroseed on properly prepared topsoil.

  • Application thickness of topsoil can vary depending on subsoil(s).

  • After hydroseed is applied, watering run times may vary due to the type of subsoil(s), time of the year, temperature, and humidity.

  • Adequate underground irrigation allows Dirt Scapes LLC to guarantee hydroseeding services. With the help of user-friendly and smartphone-controlled irrigation timer boxes on the market today, it’s easy to properly maintain watering schedules no matter the season of the year or even when you’re away from home.
