LawnPride Hydramaxx & Hydramaxx G
LawnPride Hydramaxx (liquid) & Hydramaxx G (granular) are professional long term soil moisture retention aids. These products assist to overcome not only water repellent/hydrophobic soil but also improve infiltration as well as moisture retention. These products are called soil wetting agents.
What does this mean?
- Are you having troubles maintaining the moisture levels in your lawn?
- Are you having issues when it rains or when you irrigate the water just tends to bead and run off?
Hydrophobic soil occurs when a waxy residue builds up on the soil particles resulting in it repelling water rather than absorbing it. It is most common in sandy soils, dried out potting mix and soils containing non decomposed organic matter.
You can identify hydrophobic soil by watering it. If the water beads, runs off and does not absorb into the profile and or potting media, your soil is hydrophobic.
Hydramaxx is the ultimate solution in improving hydrophobic soils, uniformity and rectifying dehydrated lawns across Australia. Reduce your watering frequency during the growing season by using Hydramaxx. Water will hold in the soil profile for extended periods, penetrate deeper, to assist in improving a deeper turf root structure.
Hydramaxx is specifically designed to be used in situations of drought and where water restrictions are present as it is shown to reduce overall water use, Hydramaxx is also highly flexible when it comes to tank mixing with other products.
