Hydroseeding

Hydroseeding is a slurry of grass seed, fertilizer, tackifier, and water sprayed onto your prepared soil. Spraying is much faster than manually spreading seeds. Once your lawn has been hydroseeded, the grass seed and fertilizer are protected by a green layer of mulch that seals in moisture and helps prevents rain from eroding the soil and washing away the seeds even on steep banks. Hydroseed services in Newberg, OR, and West Linn, OR, provide the ideal environment for germination. Much faster germination will occur because the seed was soaked with water in the mix. Hydroseeding in Newberg, OR, and West Linn, OR, allows you to have a lush, green lawn in a few weeks, depending on the time of the year and the watering consistency after application.

Site Preparation Instructions

  1. Rototill 4”-5” of compost into existing soil with lime added
  2. Rake and smooth the soil removing sticks and rocks as you go
  3. Re-grade as much as possible (as a dip now will be a dip later)
  4. Try and make it as smooth as possible; on the top layer of soil, you should be able to see the footprint not sinking
  5. Water the surface for about a week.
  6. Waiting time- about a week or so; you need to kill any and all weeds- spot spray. No need to remove the weeds; they will act as compost delivering nutrients to your lawn.
    Wait approximately 1-5 days after weed abatement, depending on the herbicide use (check product label for specifics) before hydroseeding application.
  7. One to two days before application, be sure you grade your soil surface so that it is smooth and level. The hydroseed has to make contact with the top layer of the soil.
  8. Provide access for the hydroseeding equipment and hose to target areas. Remove any obstacles that might hinder access before our arrival.

HYDROSEED CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Once your lawn has been hydroseeded, it will require consistent care, particularly for the first month. Please read the following instructions to turn the area into a beautiful green lawn!

  • Hydroseed should be watered 3 times per day for approximately 5-10 minutes per watering cycle. Keeping the yard moist will maximize seed germination.
  • The ideal times are 4:00AM, 11:00AM, and 4:00PM. (Do not water after dark)
  • Adjust the watering slightly for seasonal changes at your discretion, i.e. increase for the hot summer months or decrease for the cooler fall months.
  • Adjust the amount of watering time according to the amount of water your soil will absorb without forming puddles!
  • Keep the seed consistently damp & moist.
  • After the first mowing (at 4-6 weeks) the lawn will need deeper, and less frequent watering.
  • Once the lawn is established, watering deeply at least 3 times a week during hot summer days will help the lawn develop a deeper root system. By watering regularly and keeping your new seedlings from drying out, you ensure the beginnings of a lawn that will make your neighbors green with envy. With proper watering, you will see germination start within 10-14 days, a lawn is ready for first mowing at about 4-6 weeks, and a fully established lawn in about 6-9 months.

Mow the lawn when it reaches about 3 inches in height, and do not cut it shorter than 2 inches. As you mow your new lawn, the lawn will thicken, mature and become resilient. Keep the mower blades sharp and change the mowing directions to keep the grass growing upright. Avoid scalping! You can use a mulching mower once the lawn is established.

Your newly hydro-seeded lawn contains enough fertilizer to feed the new lawn for the first 4-6 weeks. It will need to be fertilized no later than 6 weeks after installation and again 30 days later. Use a balanced maintenance fertilizer with the numbers close to 15-7-10. If you use organic fertilizer, it is not unusual to use lower number ratings as natural fertilizer provides easier transfer of nutrients to the plant. In the fall, use a fertilizer that is lower in nitrogen. Follow instructions carefully on fertilizer package.

Keep as much traffic as possible off of the newly seeded areas for the first 6 weeks. At first, some areas will come in much better than others, this normal and typical with all hydroseed applications due to differing amounts of sun, shade, and water.

Do not apply any weed control to the lawn for the first 10-12 weeks. It is not uncommon for previous weed seeds to germinate with the new lawn but be patient for the new lawn to establish before applying a week killer.

To prevent disease and insects from invading the lawn area, keep a consistent watering, mowing, and fertilizing schedule. For advice on chemicals, pest control, and how to build a natural soil food web for the best lawn, contact your local County Extension Service.

I was referred to AOS, and it's the best one I've ever had! Replaced my failed home sewage pump on the same day in record time. With competitive costs and great service, I'll never use anyone else. A true "customer service" business!
We have used these guys a few times over the years. This last experience was even better than the great service we’ve had in the past.I briefly explained my problem, they worked out a schedule to be here the next day.Amanda was great, but I have to give a huge thanks to Josh. He remembered us from a few years past, identified my issue quickly and gave me great advice to solve it quickly to avoid bigger issues later.I highly recommend them!!Thanks again.Chad BurnettNewberg

So grateful to Jim & John who came to the house. The lady on the phone listened, asked a few questions about the clean out pipe and yard. Drains had been working all day then did a load of laundry in the evening and suddenly everything is backing up. We made a few calls around immediately the next morning when it was obvious we couldn't clear it ourselves. American came to the house a few hours later, friendly, helpful, didn't just do the job but took the time to review out septic maintenance practices so they could get a good idea of how it may be flowing, or not, and why. Got the clog cleared and came in considerably less $ than I expected to pay. Definitely will call them again, just hopefully not too soon. Thank You!
