After the job has been completed the customer should care for the new lawn observing the following details.
Watering the seeding job
During the first week the newly seeded area must be kept constantly moist by watering lightly, several times a day. However, be careful not to water so much in one time otherwise the seeds will float and run off the lawn area.
After the first week, once the grass has germinated and started a root, the watering schedule has to be changed gradually to watering less often but more deeply, for longer periods of time.
Mowing the newly seeded lawn
It is recommended that you allow the soil to get firm and the grass to grow for about 3 to 5 weeks before attempting to cut it. However, do not let the new grass grow so much that you will have trouble cutting it for being too long.
When you cut the grass for the first time set your machine at the highest cutting setting. Then gradually adjust the height down one click with each subsequent weekly cut, until you arrive at the usual height of 2.5 ".
Caring for your new lawn
It is understandable that customers get anxious about having an established lawn soon.
We use seeds of the highest quality and they will cover the lawn area very quickly. From here on, the grass will begin to develop and it is critical that it is cared for. The 3 most important things to do to keep a lawn healthy are regular watering, regular fertilization and occasional over-seeding.
It takes two at least two seasons for the grass to be completely developed.
*It is a good idea to have a watering system in place before starting the seeding job. If the seeds are not kept constantly moist for at least 3 weeks after planting they may not germinate to their full potential.
Please note that any additional work needed to be done before seeding is charged extra, such as significant grading, leveling and addition of soil for filling, or amendments, clean up of overgrown vegetation, clean up of debris over the area to be seeded, etc.
These are rates under normal working conditions. Confirmation of price should be done, considering all current job conditions, such as access to the job site, soil conditions, etc.
