What are some tips to ensure proper grass restoration when construction is completed?

Once construction is completed:

  1. Water, water, water! Please keep in mind that no plant will establish or survive without an adequate level of moisture. This is especially true once we move into the warmer months and might require watering more than once a day. Watering everyday in the morning is best, ideally between 4:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. This will allow the most efficient use of water for the new seed. Keeping the seedbed moist is the most critical component for successful establishment. The areas don't have to be saturated with water, just moist at the surface level. Our custom grass seed formulation will germinate in 7-10 days if you water every day. 
  2. When any area of bare ground is disturbed, some weed growth will occur. Removing these weed plants by hand is another way to accelerate establishment. These plants steal sunlight and water from the desirable grass plants.
