Lawn Play Aquaturf Wetting Agent
$29.95 – $99.00
Lawn Play Aquaturf is a professional quality wetting agent that allows for better water penetration.
When should I use it?
Lawn Play Aquaturf is designed to prevent soils from repelling water so whenever your irrigation does not appear to be penetrating the surface or you have inconsistent colouring of turf after fertilising. This is more critical in the growing months but can also occur during the winter months. We recommend applications start in September as part of your fertilising regime and continue with monthly applications until your final application with pre-emergent herbicide in March.

How do I use it?
Lawn Play Aquaturf is very simple to use. Simply add 200ml to 8L of water and apply over 100m2 and apply across your lawn, yes you can do your garden also. Once the application is done simply water in with a really good drink.
The product blends into the soil, so a good soaking is critical to success.
If applying to fragile garden plants or edible food make sure to apply directly to the soil not the leaf.
What’s in it?
It’s a highly concentrated long chain polymeric wetting agent.
This helps change the way you water interacts with the soil. Soils become hydrophobic when organic acids coat soil particles in a waxy residue, even the thatch on your lawn can become hydrophobic.
Lawn Play Aquaturf acts to pull water molecules apart and this reduces the water surface tension, allowing it to connect to the soil.
The technical stuff
How do I get the best results?
The best way to get results from Lawn Play Aquaturf is to apply in Spring and continue on a monthly program. After application be sure to water in well because thats the best time to get good results. Like any product be sure to apply with a high quality sprayer.The great part about a wetting agent is it can be used to ensure products like pre-emergents get watered in properly and work fantastic with granular fertilisers to ensure you get the best results, the water and fertiliser spread through the soil nice and evenly.
How much water should I apply to water in?
You should follow up with about 15mm of irrigation, the easiest way to measure this is to turn on your sprinkler and leave an empty tuna can out on your lawn, once its full then you can move the sprinkler and the can onto the next area.
Is it safe for kids and pets?
The product has a great safety profile, once it’s watered in it’s safe to walk on your lawn. Like most products keep the product container out of reach of children and pets.
Is this safe for all turf types?
It is safe for all turf types. It can be used in the garden, but it is recommended to keep the spray off the foliage of sensitive plants and water in immedately after application. Do not leave on the surface of lwn or plants waiting for rain as the product will burn if not watered in.
How long does this product last?
The longevity will depend on your soil type, location etc., so we recommend an appliction is followed by a check 30 days later. You will quickly learn if that’s enough, good healthy soils can run out to 60 days while high organic sandy soils will only last about 21 days during Summer.
Do I need to do anything else to keep my lawn looking good?
There’s a whole range of things you can do, the basics start with fertilising, weed control and insect protection. We have a great calendar and some great packs that help you solve all those problems in one go.
