Hello Groundhog Customers!
This season has started off a little early allowing us to get ahead on crabgrass, but it has been an unusually dry April and lawns are not coming out of dormancy due to the dry conditions so get that irrigation system going as soon as you can.
Save Water, Protect Your Lawn
Because drought conditions are commonplace here in New Hampshire, we are reaching out to inform you about our new lawn care product that reduces drought stress. Hydretain is a soil treatment that reduces the amount of water needed to keep the lawn healthy. Lots of people end up on watering restrictions or complete bans causing the loss of large sections or even entire yards. Hydretain is the answer.
How does Hydretain work?
Hydretain has the unique ability to attract water molecules, create droplets, and then release those droplets to plant roots. In short, it helps roots absorb more moisture and nutrients to stay healthy. One end of the Hydretain molecule anchors itself to soil particles and root hairs, coating their surface. The other end is available to grab free water molecules from humid air circulating in the soil. Once Hydretain has grabbed enough water molecules to create a droplet, the plant’s root is able to absorb the droplet through osmosis preventing it from being lost to evaporation or gravity.
Is Hydretain safe for my family?
Yes, Hydretain is even rated for use in vegetable gardens.
How often is Hydretain applied?
We offer up to 3 treatments starting in May and spaced about 4 weeks apart. It is important to start these treatments before drought conditions happen to prevent turf stress from occurring.
