I don't know what type of grass seed you had hydroseeded. Fescues take longer to fill in than the Kentucky bluegrass. I also don't know how you are watering or fertilizing. If your grass is thin, you may need to over-seed. I would recommend waiting until the weather cools off a bit. I would overseed the bare areas in September. Meanwhile, you could fertilize and establish a good watering schedule--less frequently and longer time than when you first hydroseeded last year.

- I have just purchased two plum trees Santa Rosa and Satsuma. I've read that they have higher water requirements than peach trees. I have two locations I am considering for these tress. I live very close to Utah Lake. The water table is very high here and the winters seem somewhat more mild because of the lower elevation and the proximity of the lake. Both locations are on the east side of the house. One is about 7 feet above the water level in our upper yard the other is 6 feet below in in the lower yard. The soil in the upper yard is mostly clean fill with lots of clay and rock but would provide shelter from harsh afternoon sun and wind. The soil in the lower yard is comprised highly of organic material. I would build a mound so that the tree would be elevated from direct contact with the water but there would still be water more easily available to the root system than in the upper yard. It would not receive shelter from the afternoon sun until much later in the afternoon/evening and would not receive much if any shelter from the wind. The main advantage in the second location is the nice soil and the proximity to moisture. I have some grapes that have done well in the more wet less sheltered second location.
