Water Conservation

Ecolawn’s Two Water-Saving Products

Drought conditions in Utah continue to worsen even when we have record snowfall. If we continue on this drought route, there may be city restrictions on outdoor water use.

However, you don’t need to chuck your dreams of a beautiful summer lawn surrounded by colorful flowerbeds, trees and shrubs. Our two water-saving products will keep moisture in your soil for up to three months. You’ll notice a 40% water-savings right away with these hygroscopic humectant treatments.

Ecolawn’s Water-Saving Products

At Ecolawn, we know the importance of conserving water. Utah’s desert-like climate makes growing a healthy lawn and landscape a challenge.

As lawn care professionals, we’ve witnessed firsthand how summer drought affects turfgrass. Dry spots, diseases and insects attack lawns that go dormant. And your property will look dull and brown.

Here are Utah’s drought statistics: 60% of Utah is in a moderate drought, and 33% of the state is abnormally dry that could lead to a drought situation. Even though Utah received the right amount of snow this winter, it wasn’t enough to make up for drier, less snowy years.

At Ecolawn, we use two water-saving products that draw moisture from the atmosphere and keep it locked in the soil for a longer period.

Typically, gravity will pull water vapor away from the soil so it can’t percolate down deep into the ground. Also, plants can’t use water vapor—they take up their moisture through their root system.

Hydretain is a natural product that works against gravity by transforming water vapor into moisture droplets that cling to a plant’s root hairs

We Apply Hydretain and Our Other Water-Conserving Product to Your Lawn and Landscape

We apply this product to your lawn, flowerbeds and other landscaped areas using our tanker truck with a hose or using a spreader for the granular product. You do need to water the product into the ground for it to start working.

We take appointments to apply this product in March or April. It lasts three months in the soil—getting your property through Utah’s harsh, dry summers.

Most customers only need one application in the spring. However, you may want us to apply a second treatment in June if you live in Park City and other areas that may have water restrictions and moderate drought.

Water-Conserving Treatments are Perfect for Homeowners

If you want a beautiful, thick lawn all summer, then you need our water-conserving products. Hydretain will save you 40% more water right away.

Hydretain is an investment. It’s an expensive product to put on your lawn and in your flowerbeds. But you reap the rewards when you get your water bill—you’ll be using less water to keep your property looking its best.

At Ecolawn, we recommend that you use Hydretain or our other water-saving product because of Utah’s arid conditions. In that first month, you’ll notice that your water bills are lower because you’re using less outdoor water.

What does Hydretain do?

After we apply Hydretain to your lawn and flowerbeds, you’ll need to water the product after application. From there, the product will attract water vapor molecules and attach them to root hairs.

Hydretain will then transform those water vapor molecules into tiny droplets that the plant can absorb and translocate to the rest of the plant. Hydretain does that by staying in the root zone and acting like a magnet, drawing down water evaporation back into the soil and keeping it in the root zone.

6 Benefits of Hydretain and Other Water-Saving Products

As mentioned above, Hydretain provides value to homeowners or property managers. Again, here are the six benefits of using Hydretain and similar water-saving products:

  1. You’ll notice lower water bills.
  2. You’re helping the environment by keeping moisture in the soil as well as not draining our groundwater supply through outdoor water usage.
  3. You can still have a beautiful lawn and landscape even if you need to reduce your water usage.
  4. You’ll know that Hydretain and similar products help with nutrient uptake after fertilization.
  5. Your turfgrass, trees, shrubs and planters stay alive and even thrive during a drought with Hydretain in the soil.
  6. Hydretain helps with seed germination including turfgrass seed. You’ll notice a fuller, greener lawn and bolder flowers in your flowerbeds.


What can the customer expect from Hydretain and other hygroscopic humectants?

You’ll notice the results already mentioned above. You can expect:

  • Your lawn won’t go from green to brown.
  • Your lawn and landscape will thrive despite a drought and water restrictions.
  • You only need one treatment per season. One treatment will last three months covering the entire summer.
  • You can have a second treatment in late summer and early fall if you believe your lawn and gardens need one.
