Dry Patch

This condition now affects more lawns than ever, because of more extreme weather conditions and long periods without sufficient rainfall.

It’s difficult to believe that this condition could be a problem in this country, but the truth is without proper lawn irrigation during long dry periods, the grass becomes parched and can become dormant, dry up and in severe cases die off.

When rain falls again, initially the water just runs off, as the soil has become hydrophobic (similar to when a hanging basket is watered after going a day or two with no water). To retain moisture we use a surfactant wetting agent that attracts water to the root zone instead of running off. This will save up to 50% of the water requirement and keep your lawn healthy throughout drought conditions.
