Soil Builder Program – Combat Drought Stress

Lawns everywhere are struggling due to drought stress. This is causing the turfgrass to go into premature dormancy as it directs its energy to protecting the root system thus eliminating its efforts to produce new top growth. While certain varieties of turfgrasses have a better ability to withstand drought stress conditions for an extended amount of time, a prolonged period of drought stress will lead to the decline, and eventual death, of the turfgrass.

The ability for turfgrass recovery is less prominent during this time of year due to the heat-index and lack of rainfall. As a result, we are extending the availability of our final round in the Soil Builder Program to allow customers one last opportunity to proactively combat drought stress and provide your lawn with the nutrients it needs to recover.

Each Soil Builder Application consists of four products; Firm Up, Receptor, Axilo Mix 5, and Renova. This combination of products can improve the quality of your soil by increasing water movement and retention, extending the nutritional value of fertilization, and combating negative stressors to the lawn.

Firm Up – allows water to better penetrate the soil profile and enhance soil wetting characteristics. This results in a more consistent level of moisture for the turfgrass to help minimize drought stress conditions and help the turfgrass perform at its best.

Receptor – helps increase the soil ability to recycle nutrients. Increased root development is key to any plants survival and these hormones help increase the overall turfgrass root mass, improving its ability to better absorb more moisture and nutrients.

Axilo Mix 5 – is a slow-release nutrient package that allows the plant to absorb nutrients more readily as it needs it. Within those nutrients is Magnesium, a necessary component of chlorophyll – what makes the plant green – thus allowing the turfgrass to replenish chlorophyll levels at its maximum capacity and restore its deep-green color.

Renova – is an extract of multiple plants species that contain different hormones intended to fight environmental stressors, such as drought stress. Like a daily vitamin, this helps prepare the plant for whatever expected or unexpected situations it must live through.
