Poor quality soil in a lawn needs to be improved in order to achieve the most benefits from any other lawn treatment applications.
Commercially, soil testing is very common. The only method that the majority of golf courses and sports grounds use to identify the soil quality is with quality testing. The majority of turf growers also use the services of a testing authority.
In many cases, the introduction of seaweed based products or an organic compound is required to improve soil quality. Many lawn companies assume that the solution is to apply more fertiliser, and fail to consider the fact that soil treatment is equally as important as any fertilising programme.
A single application of liquid soil-improver provides a slow-acting, long-lasting plant food which is broken down over a period of months by the soil bacteria, providing a health benefit to all of your lawns.
The application will then build up the structure of the soil, stimulating microbial activity and providing a range of micronutrients, as well as vitamins and alginates.
