Hydretain in Landscape Installation and Maintenance
Hydretain is a revolutionary chemistry designed to reduce watering frequency and protect landscapes from drying out for an extended period between watering cycles. A blend of hygroscopic humectant compounds, Hydretain attracts and condenses free water molecules from the air within the soil to create microscopic droplets that plant roots can use. This simple application will result in healthy, vigorous and drought resistant landscapes.

FAQ's you should know
Once applied and watered into the root zone, Hydretain’s hygroscopic humectant components attached to the root hairs of plants and lawns, drawing moisture vapor from the soil like tiny water magnets. It then converts that moisture vapor into water droplets, enabling plants to take up more moisture and assisting in the uptake of nutrients.
Hydretain can be used on all types of plants including turfgrasses, flowering plants, trees, shrubs, and vegetable gardens. It may be used in landscapes and containers – both indoors and out. Hydretain can be used to reduce water stress at germination, installation and throughout lifelong maintenance.
No. Wetting agents reduce the surface tension of water, which helps water enter hydrophobic soils more easily. They impact the movement of liquid water down to and throughout the soil. Hydretain is unique in its ability to impact the movement of moisture vapor (the gas form of water) as it moves back up through the soil where it would normally be lost to evaporation. Hydretain attracts soil moisture vapor and converts it back into plant usable water droplets – reducing evaporative loss and making more water available to plant roots. Superabsorbent polymers or hydrogels are similar to the polymers used in baby diapers. They absorb and store liquid water. In most cases, superabsorbent polymers must be incorporated into the root zone, making them difficult to use on established lawns and plants.
Although Hydretain is not certified organic, it is produced using primarily food grade, organic-based hygroscopic and humectant ingredients. Hydretain ES Plus has been certified as 93% biobased by the United States Department of Agriculture BioPreferred Program. It is safe to use on commercially grown food producing agriculture as well as residential vegetable and herb gardens, fruits and citrus trees. Hydretain Granular OC incorporates the Hydretain formula into an organic compost carrier.
Yes. Hydretain products are safe for use around kids and pets. Hydretain is not classified as hazardous under the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. It does not require any wait period before people and pets can enter the application area.
Each application of Hydretain lasts for up to 3 months.
Hydretain is available in both liquid and granular formulas. Liquid can be applied by spray, drench, fertigation or injection. Granular products can be applied to existing landscapes using any standard spreader equipment. For new installs granular may be incorporated into the soil at planting or applied topically after planting. Hydretain must be watered into the root zone to be effective.
