  • What's it called?

    So we're having a major heat wave, and all the lawns have turned yellow.

    What are those pellets called that retain water and release over time?


    I think it'd be a good time to sell that to my clients considering we have water restrictions/bans.

          Ive used it in garden and potted soil. I dont really see how your going to use this on a lawn. Generally this polymer is mixed into the dirt.

            Oh ****. I thought it was the same polymer you were talking about earlier. Never used this coconut product. Still dont see how it works on a lawn.

                Check out this wikipedia on soil moisture content. It's fascinating to see what kind of soil content will hold the most water.

                    Yeah but most of that polymer is meant to be mixed into the soil and help the soil retain water. Not just spread out on a lawn.

                      Aww MAN!

                      I want some! I can't find it anywhere!

                      I phoned up a local place and the convo went something like this:

                      Me: hey, I'm looking for something that I can apply to my lawn that will retain the water, and slowly release it over time. Do you have a product like this?

                      Guy: Eh? No we don't have dat! *click*

                            hahahahaha!!!

                            The only reason this idea would be nice, is to get away with charging a good amount of money for a quick service during the hot period of the season.

                            Oh well, the lawns will be green again next week! Not that I care, making money is more important than healthy lawns.
