Three applications between May and September maximizes your watering efficiency.
And, of course, it’s safe for you and your lawn.
Want to Increase your Watering Efficiency?
We utilize specialized surfactants that increase watering efficiency by up to 50% on turf treated with it. This compound lowers the surface tension between two liquids (or between a liquid and a solid) and is designed to be used as a preventative treatment so water stays in your soil, where it belongs. It successfully addresses problems with water movement, water distribution, hydration and drainage in root zones, caused by water repellency on mineral surfaces in the soil.

AquaSmart is another product we use to improve water management. This unique product is designed to improve the effectiveness of every irrigation cycle. Its biodegradable and non-toxic super absorbent sand is used in conjunction with annual topdressing and aeration. Combined together with these processes, AquaSmart increases the moisture holding capacity of your soil by an additional 60 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet. We think that’s incredible. Don’t you?
AquaSmart decreases water runoff and releases moisture and nutrients to your root zone as needed. This process will occur long after the surface has dried with AquaSmart. In addition, AquaSmart lasts five years with only a marginal reduction in effectiveness year after year.
