It is critical to prepare the area before hydroseeding. Choose the best seeds for your location based on factors like climate, soil type, and intended use. Consult a local nursery or landscaping expert to determine the best seeds for your needs. Fill the hydroseeder halfway with water, then add the fertilizer and binding agent of your choice. Then, gradually add the seeds to the mixture, stirring constantly to ensure even distribution. Spray the seed mixture evenly over the prepared area with high-pressure hoses. Apply just enough mixture to ensure good seed-to-soil contact, but don't oversaturate the area. It is critical to keep the area moist after hydroseeding in order to promote germination. Water the area on a regular basis, and try not to walk or drive over the newly seeded area. It's also critical to avoid using herbicides or pesticides until the new vegetation has established itself. .
