Types of Turf Grasses
Turf Type Tall Fescue
Is a cool season grass that forms a
dense turf when planted properly.  
It grows in shade or sun and
withstands the abuse of high
Dwarf Turf Type Tall Fescue
The characteristics of Dwarf
Fescue are: finer leaf texture, dark
green color and improved turf
density.  Due to the slower
(vertical) growth habits of Dwarf
Turf Type Tall Fescue, fewer
mowings are required than other
tall fescues.
Fine Fescue
There are many types of
non-native and native fine
fescues.  These grasses are great
for hard to mow slopes or areas
where low maintenance is desired.
These grasses can be mowed 2x
annually or less.  Regular irrigation,
over seeding and weed pulling a
few times per year will provide a
kept, natural look.
Turf Type Perennial Ryegrass
Perennial Ryegrass is often
selected for its ability to germinate
and establish quickly.  Its fine
blades and dark green color make
it a good choice for high quality
turf needs especially when kept at
low mowing heights.
Kentucky Bluegrass  Common
& Improved
Bluegrass has long been a
component in turf applications
due to its adaptability and
blue-green color.  Common
varieties have a more upright
growth habit, fine to medium leaf
texture and medium green color.  
Improved varieties have the ability
to form a tight turf by spreading
of tillers and rhizomes.  Leaf width,
texture and color vary by variety
and are usually blended to
complement each other.  
Kentucky Bluegrass requires more
maintenance than other turf
grasses but can mowed at a lower
height giving a distinct well
groomed appearance.
Mature Creeping Red.  Great for slopes, meadows and
erosion control.  Irrigate to keep green year-round.

As necessary, bring in a good quality top soil and or rototill
amendments into the areas you plan to seed.  Use caution when
considering the addition of recycled wood compost. This material can
contain weed seed which you do not want to introduce to your site.   
Also, recycled wood compost will take up nitrogen necessary for good
germination of new seedlings.  If soil fertility is in question, a soils test
($100 +/-) can simply determine what amendments should be added to
your soil or to the hydroseed slurry to optimize  turf growth.  If a good
turf stand (or weed stand) has flourished in the soil previously, a soils
test is probably not warranted.
Proper irrigation is important.  The irrigation system should have total
coverage and should water evenly.  Check for head-to-head coverage
(overlap), low and high spots.  Re-grade any deficiencies and adjust
heads/change nozzles.  The system should be capable of watering 2-5
times per day during the germination period.
Weed control is important.  Remove undesired vegetation from the area.
 Water & fertilize the area to germinate weed seed.  This will also show
you if you have head-to-head coverage, or not.  Dry areas will not grow
grass.  After weeds have germinated (7-14 days), spray the weeds with
a contact weed killer like Round-Up, or remove the weeds by hand.  
Pre-seed irrigation and weed kill/removal may take more than one cycle
depending on your site.
After hydroseeding, all surface areas must be kept continually moist
with frequent light watering.  Water 2-5 times per day depending upon
weather.  Avoid puddling or runoff.  Do not allow germinating seedlings
to dry out or they will die.  Once seed has germinated, and growth is
established, water should be applied with less frequency, but for longer
periods of time.  Deep watering will establish deep root growth.  
Mow grass every 7-10 days depending on the species you have selected
and fertilize with any balanced fertilizer 1-3 times per year depending
upon species and soil conditions.  Regular mowing will manage weeds
and push lateral growth, creating a tight stand of grass.
