Serf and Turf

There is no need to become a serf to your summer lawn, committing mornings, evenings and possibly scorching afternoons, monotonously overwatering (where available) or worse, having to spray paint bald spots. How often have you agonized over whether that large brown patch in the middle of the front yard is just devoid of water or suffering a biotic blight of parasitic nematodes? That is why, once again, we’re preaching prevention by promoting the vigorous and sustained growth of a vast root system. When you think about it, the amount of plant material we see above ground (the length of a well manicured lawn) is essentially the same amount as the root system below ground and this root system requires just as much care, if not more. Thus, if you want to avoid seeing a patchwork of exposed terra firma, it is essential to create and maintain a thick matted matrix of roots. To accomplish this, consider using Liquid Hormex Growth Stimulant to increase the health of your summer lawn. That’s right: The triple threat of IBA (Indole-3-butyric acid), NAA (1-Naphthaleneacetic acid) and vitamin B1 combined together can add a powerful boost to aid in secondary/lateral root growth.

It is important to remember that when your lawn is starving for nutrients it will symptomatically show signs of drying and yellowing, similar to that of dehydration. Try adding Liquid Hormex Growth Stimulant by utilizing a feeder connected directly to your hose or by applying a diluted amount via a watering can. Keep in mind, for large applications it may be worth investing in a broadcast spreader or liquid feeder. Whether you’re treating a golf course or a yard, follow the recipe of 1 oz of Liquid Hormex Growth Stimulant per every 100 square feet of turf. You can, of course, apply it on its own or coupled with a nitrogen rich fertilizer. After the first feeding, it is good to follow up by feeding once every 2 to 3 weeks throughout the season. Doing this will help your lawn withstand the effects of summer’s extreme heat and drought and allow you more time to sit back and watch the grass grow.
