We are all feeling the effects of water restrictions, hopefully your yard has benefited from rain as of late, as we've been blessed with some summer rains. Most municipalities are frowned upon in these times of water shortages regardless of the occasional shower, however, your blame may be misdirected. Often protocol trumps any personal feelings toward assigning water level restrictions, rules set in place years prior to drought, are strictly adhered upon by city directors as they try and limit the amount of fall out from not observing a drought as quickly as they should, effectively being pro-active, as unpopular as it may be. Often those rules set in stone are followed by city employees that may very well live in the same town their instituting restrictions on, effectively restricting themselves as well. Water restrictions are what they are, a necessity to insure our major infrastructures and cities don't fall victim to what some other unfortunate places around the state have done, ran out of water. It is possible, and has happened.
Most towns are allowing some watering and most are on every other week schedule, which can keep the lawn alive and looking somewhat healthy, you'd be surprised how little water Bermuda grass takes to survive, being as drought tolerant as it is, and being native to Texas. So most folks are getting by, but still concerned. Over the last few years, some companies have done what companies have done for centuries to capitalize on a shortage or crisis, they come up with an alternative. Some, don't work, some are purely to take advantage, and then there's those companies that come up with a viable product that fills a need. Well, we've found a product that actually works and fills a need, fills it in a way that's bio-degradable, affordable and easy to apply.
Moisture Manager by Hydretain is an amazing product that works very well to help retain moisture in the soil, helping ornamental grasses look good or better than doing without during a drought, utilizing a unique product similar to a wetting agent or soil conditioner, Moisture Manager contains hydretain, a humectant that causes moisture to be literally pulled from the air around the plants roots, humidity that otherwise would not be available to the roots, this product makes that unclaimed moisture readily available, simply by pulling that moisture from the air. Now, the science of this product can be intimidating, but when the company representative explained how it worked to us here at Lawn Tech, it was easy to understand how Moisture Manager worked, how it effectively pulled moisture from the air, held it for weeks until the plant could uptake it.
We've been using Moisture Manager now for about two years, we've been extremely impressed with the results, so much so employees have put the product out on their own lawns in order to salvage them from drought. We've had customers call in and tell us how much the product impacted their lawn and raved about the product to neighbors. The word is out on Moisture Manager and it's all been good. Our experience a valid documented success.
Moisture manager is available in two forms of application, one is liquid, the other granular, both work effectively. Granular is easier to apply, its put out with a conventional lawn spreader and must be watered into the soil, helping the product get to the roots of the grass, once watered in, the product works great, helping the lawn to stay hydrated between watering's, the residual last about three months. The more applications you do, the more builds up in the soil, in this case more is better, all in an effort to stave off the effects of drought, and or high temperatures.
