What this product does is really incredible and don’t ask me exactly how it does it because I’m not a scientist!
But what Hydretain does is suck humidity out of the air and bring that water down into your grass root system!
Now what that means is that because you’re getting water sucked into the roots from the air, you can reducethewatering requirementsof your lawn by up to 50% or more! Hydretain is an excellent lawn moisture manager.
As I've learned after using it, Hydretain is one of those secret ingredients that golf courses, towns, and municipalities use to save on their water bills!
So why can't us DIYers save too?
The application rate for granular is 2.5-3 lbs/1,000 sq ft.
So you'll get 5,000-6,000 sq ft of coverage from the 15 lb bag, depending on which rate you use.
This product cannot go on dry soil, it needs initial soil moisture so apply after a rain or after you've watered.
After applying water in within 24 hours with a full 1/2” of water. This is extremely important, the product needs to get into the soil to work effectively.
Hydretain will stay in the soil for about 90 days.
So if you live somewhere like Montana you can apply once in June and be set for the summer but if you live somewhere like TX or FL where we have longer seasons, you'd do two applications ~90 days apart.
This product will not burn your lawn so it’s a great one to learn your spreader settings with. On mine, I used a setting of 5.5 on my Scotts EdgeGuard spreader.
The easy-to-apply Hydretain Granular is on an organic compost carrier, which can be spread, broadcast, or top dressed. Kid and pet friendly.
