Hydroseeding Washed Out
« on: Fri October 01, 2021, 08:46:57 PM »
Hi All,

3.5 weeks ago I had my 25,000 sq ft yard hydroseeded and experienced a rain event the next day.  I understand it is industry standard to not be liable for mother nature and I have some work ahead of me.  The pictures below are at ~2.5 weeks and it has filled in some, but Id say ~30% of my yard is not covered by grass.  Given the state of the lawn in the attached pictures, I think im most likely looking at the following options:

A) respraying yard in spring, im assuming this will require the cost of hydroseed material and most likely soil preparation?
B) aerating lawn in spring, broadcast seeding, rolling yard for seed/soil contact, water

I would prefer option B as it is most cost effective, but if yard is too far gone I'd like to save time and just go for re-spraying.  My contractor has agreed to assist at a reduced cost but seems hesitant to offer a recommended solution, he is essentially offering me option A or option B. 

Wondering what people with more experience would recommend.

Thanks!

It does appear to have washed out to a good degree.  It may fill in some on it's own but will likely need some help.   Either option A or B would work well.  Another option you might consider is slit seeding.  You could rent a slit seeder and that would eliminate the need to do any soil prep.  I don't really see any problem with option B which seems to be the way you would prefer to go.  Aerating should loosen the soil to a degree and that should be a viable solution to Mother Nature's evil deed.
