    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.

    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.

    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*

    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.

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

    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.
