The new Hydrate© treatment from Lawn3 has been introduced to help lawns withstand long periods of dry weather and retain water in the lawn root structure avoiding premature browning and the causes of dry patch.
Lawn3 Hydrate© helps the lawn stay lush and green for longer. Hydrate combats water loss during periods of drought, by making the most of what water there is in the ground. Under normal conditions when water becomes scarce, the water in the soil will tend to congregate in areas where it can physically exist more freely. Those areas within the soil that have built up water repellent deposits will become dryer, resulting in the grass above dying off (known as ‘dry patch’). Lawn3 Hydrate© breaks down these water repellent deposits, allowing the water to distribute more evenly within the soil which results in less dry patch.
Lawn3 Hydrate© reduces the surface tension at the surface of the lawn. The result is that when it does rain water can more readily enter the soil rather than running off, and more water in the soil means healthier grass. Lawn3 Hydrate© significantly reduces irrigation requirements, and can potentially result in a 100% increase in water retention in natural soil after a single application.
