In combination with our deep, compressed air de-compaction treatment, this additional service is targeted at reducing the effects of drought on your turf playing surfaces by injecting polymer water storing crystals into the rootzone of your grass.
The crystals are injected on the final air blast and combined with dried, milled seaweed as a carrier. The dried seaweed also adds additional nutrient.
The polymer crystals remain in the newly created underground fractures and fissures where they are capable of expanding to 100 times their original size following rainfall or irrigation and will remain effective for up to ten years.
The polymer absorb any excess water in the surrounding soil and remain turgid until natural drainage and evaporation reduce the amount of available water in the soil. The roots of the grass can tap into this water reservoir thus reducing the effects of drought.
Eventually, the water storing crystals will reduce to their original size until the soil water is replenished.
Using this product as part of our deep, compressed air decompaction treatment ensures that any water available to the root zone is conserved and released over a controlled period.
Water storing polymers are suitable for injection during our aeration treatment of all amenity turf including golf courses, sports fields, and parks and gardens.
This treatment is also effective in the development of new tree plantations or in assisting older more established trees and shrubs.
