How long to keep people off a newly hydroseeded lawn
« on: Sun May 01, 2016, 02:12:30 PM »
Hello all,
I need to redo an area in a public park at the City I work for.  This is a high traffic area right now with a farmers market set up every Wednesday and lots of groups that rent the park on the weekends for weddings etc.  I'm wondering how long I need to keep people of a newly hydro seeded area.

If I wait until fall, how long can I wait in the season to put in a new lawn (would September be too late in the year)  Folly Beach, SC

September should be fine in SC.  What kind of grass are you going to be planting.  I might be able to answer better if I knew that.

Since it is a high traffic area you must give time for roots to develop and knit with the soil. Usually an entire growing season is recommended when seeding an athletic field. 3 to 4 months would be ideal.  If you seeded in Sept it should be good to go by late the following spring.  Taking core samples would give you an idea of the root development.
