There’s no hiding from the drought conditions throughout the United States. Water is scarce, even when you’re not in the dog days of summer, and watering your lawn or garden can be the first things put under restrictions. But did you know that you don’t have to trade in your green grass for a brown top coat just because you can’t water as often?
Soil2O® is your answer. When sprayed on your lawn or garden, Soil2O is a soil conditioner that allows your lawn to retain up to 400 times its weight in water and is proven to reduce consumption. Better yet, 95% of that water is released back into the root zone of your plants or soil. Your lawn retains more water, it stays green longer, and it cuts back on the amount of water you need to keep your garden greener than your neighbor’s. You can’t eliminate watering with Soil2O, but you can water less often with better results.
Soil2O doesn’t just reduce your water consumption. It promotes healthy root development in your plants and lawn and generates faster seed germination by keeping the nutrients in your roots longer. Soil2O is available in three varieties as a soil amendment to your lawn, each of which has been created and refined to meet your individual and diverse needs for gardening supplies:
- Soil2O Granular: Perfect for pre-planting of trees, shrubs and annuals. It also caters to sodding, seeding and sprigging all types of turf.
- Soil2O Topical: Best for turf you’ve already planted; this powder soil conditioner easily mixes with water and needs no special tools to apply.
- Soil2O Dust Control: Most often used for construction or road work to control road dust, Soil2O Dust Control mitigates dust emissions from construction sites. Soil2O Dust Control has also been highly successful with controlling dust at coal ash storage facilities.
The U.S. Drought Monitor is a partnership between the National Drought Mitigation Center, United States Department of Agriculture, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
