Great lawns have great roots!
The secret to a fantastic looking lawn is in the soil, and the grass roots that lie within. Anything that can be done to increase root mass will improve the look of your lawn, it’s as simple as that. Your soil contains literally billions of beneficial bacteria which work on the roots of your grass helping them develop and grow.
The soil conditioner treatment is a liquid seaweed treatment (Ascophyllum nodosum) which feeds the colonies of bacteria in your soil. This results in a significant growth of your lawns root mass, which in turn leads to a stronger and more resilient lawn.
Applying a soil conditioner treatment regularly throughout the year has been shown to aid the lawn in recovering from stress, aid new grass to establish more quickly and feed the beneficial bacteria which helps to break down thatch, reducing the requirement for harsh scarification treatments.
Adding a Soil Conditioner treatment is a great benefit to all lawns throughout the year.
