Q

It is July 6th and I have a dirt yard now. Is it too late to plant a few trees and shrubs and would it be better to hydroseed now or wait until September?

Answer(s)

A

The timing of your hydroseeding depends largely on the turfgrass species that you are trying to grow. If you will be seeding any of the cool-season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescues or the fine-leaf fescues, it would be better to wait until the weather cools off in the fall. The fall is the best time to seed those grasses. If you will be using a warm-season grass such as buffalograss, this time of year would be alright for seeding although June would have been better.
