How do I prepare the area that needs to be hydroseeded?
There is no difference than the way you would prep the area for sod or seeding conventionally. However, preparing the ground for hydroseeding is a very important part of the entire process. Remove existing grass and weeds. If there is an excessive amount of vegetation in the area, a nonselective herbicide, such as Round-Up, can be sprayed over the entire area to kill unwanted weeds.
