Lawn Rehabilitation with GeoPlant Aquasafe Suspension

Whether you watch the following video first and then the more detailed explanatory text afterwards, or possibly vice versa, is your decision. The video contains some explanatory captions to a limited extent. Ultimately, a complete understanding will come from combining the information in the video with the following text.

 



1. Repairing (partial) lawn areas by applying a suspension of liquefied GeoPlant Aquasafe (fine granules or pellets) and overseeding.

Suspension: Undissolved particles of the hydrogel composite GeoPlant Aquasafe, uniformly dispersed in water.

Why use a suspension?

a) GeoPlant Aquasafe belongs beneath the soil surface where the plant roots are, accessing the water and nutrients stored in the composite particles according to their current needs. Applying GeoPlant Aquasafe to the soil surface would be wasteful due to increased evaporation and inaccessibility for plant roots.

b) In a suspension, the countless mini- and micro-particles reach their maximum expansion (in just a few minutes) upon contact with water (2 tablespoons per 1 liter of water). This allows for partially filling drilled holes (using a planting tool for small areas or an earth auger for larger areas) to about 2/3 of their capacity, followed by filling the remaining space with excavated soil. This prevents GeoPlant Aquasafe from reaching the soil surface after irrigation or rainfall, thus avoiding the evaporation and waste associated with excessive application of fine granules or pelletized active substances.

2. Replenishment for the sustained effectiveness of the (reversible) long-term water reservoir (after each uptake by plant roots and refilling through watering) for up to a maximum of 5 years

(particularly recommended for sandy substrates without compensating humus formation)

The (scientifically known) degradation of the chemically organic (yet effectively synthetic) hydrogel polymer, the main water storage component of the composite, leads to a diminishing effect on water and nutrient retention within 3-5 years (depending on climate, soil conditions, and microbial activities).

If compensating humus formation underneath the lawn does not occur simultaneously after successful establishment of the lawn (which is significantly less likely in very sandy soil), a reapplication of GeoPlant Aquasafe may be advisable to maintain the original effectiveness.

In general, an existing lawn that is extremely thirsty for water and fertilizer or appears to be "suffering" does not necessarily need to be completely renovated. In such cases, a solution is possible with less effort and cost, albeit not without some effort and patience.

The procedure is fundamentally the same as shown in the video on this page.
