People think that the seeds will die but they won't. They will just have to wait until the environment starts to get warm. Most companies recommend hydroseeding during February until late October or within the duration of full Spring and Winter. Hydroseeding can also be done during the Summer season. But, the hot weather condition requires adequate watering to ensure that the seeds will germinate.

The hydroseeding preparation varies depending on the size of the area that will be hydroseeded. Keep in mind though that the result of the hydroseeding process will be dependent on the amount of effort applied during the preparation stage.
