Ask discussed in the other material, it doesn’t do anything to change the soil structure (Jar of Sugar and Marbles), it just pokes holes in the soil.
Since SoilTech is a liquid, it covers the entire lawn. Mechanical aeration only pokes holes in 3-5% of the lawn at best. Meaning SoilTech effects the entire lawn.Add an answer to this item.
Yes, we’ve done testing and it is. With that said, still tell customers, like all other of your treatments, to stay off the lawn till it is dry.
As for the lawn techs, you might find that the constant over spray on your boots or if you get some on your hands it may feel tacky, that’s just how it is. It is not hazardous.Add an answer to this item.
Nope. There is a slight amber color in the concentrate but once mixed with water it’s virtually clear. We’ve been selling it for 15+ years and tens of thousands of gallons have been applied and never had an issue with staining concrete of any type.Add an answer to this item.
It Aerates the Soil allowing air into the soil increases microbial activity, adding nutrients to the soil but also making the ones you all put down more affective. Bottomline, is it creates a healthier environment for the turf.
Aerating or increasing soil porosity makes it easier and more efficient to get inputs (i.e., fertilizer) into the soil where they need to be to work.
Porosity makes it a lot easier for increased overall root growth and depth. Better root system, healthier turf.
Always a tough one to answer since a lot of factors play into it, mainly watering, but the first signs of it working will be in the worst places in 30-60 days (nothing in soils change quickly). Low lying areas that hold water for long periods of time will start to drain faster and bald areas with warm season grass, will see if spread back into those areas in that timeframe.
Nothing! No chewed-up turf or plugs laying on the ground. Much like a normal liquid treatment, there isn’t any change in appearance, for now. If you are concerned about the customer not seeing anything, you can either add a marking dye or an iron amendment to get a good pop of color in a few days.
Yes. Much of what gypsum or calcium does to combat soil compaction, SoilTech does and then some. The biggest difference is how much faster and more complete SoilTech will reduce compaction. Gypsum and calcium product take a long time to break down enough for the soil to absorb and use them.
Put simply, all the other liquid aeration products can give some minor and short-term relief but don’t fix the actual issue of soil compaction. They put a band-aid on the problem, SoilTech fixes the problem.
One application of SoilTech will improve your compacted soils but won’t wipe them out completely. Also, most of the factors that caused the soil compaction in the first place won’t go away either (like foot traffic). Yearly applications will reduce soil compaction further down into the ground and then will keep it that way.
SoilTech will not harm any plant material. SoilTech stays in the soil and is not absorbed by plant roots or tissue.
