Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craig Heat, drought and water restrictions? AquaSmart helps hold the moisture in the soil
Purchased on Home Depot Internet Site as not available in store. Applied and waited a couple of weeks to see improvement. Satisfied with improvement so purchased some more and finished areas in my lawn. Central Texas drought, 100 degree weather, wind and water restrictions (1 time per week)are making it difficult to keep the lawn green. I applied in hot spots that were yellow and actually dead. Grass is now growing back in the treated areas. The Texas hill country has little top soil, so top soil is hauled in prior to the lawn being planted. Hot spots are area with low amounts of top soil and low root penetration.

I applied 60 pounds of Aqua Smart to my 1400 square foot lawn which is ficus. After two weeks my lawn has already started to look greener. I have been watering it only twice a week because of the sever drought we are experiencing here in California. Watering my lawn twice a week during the Summer here has not been enough. My lawn was slowly turning more and more brown. Now it is greening back up and I credit Aqua Smart with my lawn becoming greener.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NascarSandy Agua Smart is a great product
Agua Smart is amazing but has little real information online or on the package; you are left on your own to understand it. BEFORE APPLYING THE PRODUCT... spread a little on something, then water it lightly. Watch how it responds! The BIG trick is to really evenly distribute the product, which is key to the success of H20 retention. Each 30 lb bag covers 750sq/ft if properly spread. We bought the type of spreader recommended, but my husband had thick glops of the product every time he stopped (which seemed to be often with the spreader recommended) so we used a broom with a light sweep on areas where we had too much product. You can add seed with the product if you have bare areas of turf. We are seeing good result. HD On-line cost is about half of what the local Ewing Landscape dealer was charging, so worth the wait for delivery!

Did very little to improve the reduced use of water.

During the California drought most lawns are mostly brown or turning brown, but our lawn, with minimal watering, is fairing better than most and still is growing and alive. We have a small patch of lawn in the front yard that is watered twice for 5 minutes every fourth day by our sprinkler system; we also pour a bucket of water on the lawn daily from water we collect from faucets in the house; maybe 3 to 4 gallons (This helps minimally). Had to use a hand rotary spreader to apply this product; was a bit difficult with the product so fine, but well worth the effort...so far. Just not sure how often the product will need to be applied. It has been on our lawn about six weeks. May need one more application, if the lawn starts to brown, and then, hopefully, more rain!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne Big money saver - paid for itself in lesws than three months
I live in the Texas Hill Country where we have been experiencing a severe drought and are on water restrictions (watering once a week). I have a large yard of more than 35,000 square feet and water bills of more than $600 per month are not uncommon. I bought some of this product last year and put it in the front and side yards. It worked so well, I did the back yard also
I aerated the lawn, picked up the plugs with a lawn sweeper, spread the Aquasmart wirh a fertilizer spreader (making sure that some got down into each hole. Then I spread mortar sand and push-broomed it down into the grass and into the holes.
The results were fantastic! Last summer I had the greenest grass I've had since I've been here - even greener than when I was watering three times a week.
I got turned in by someone for violating the watering restriction, but when the police showed up to give me a ticket, I was able to show them the computer printout from the untility company that shows how much water was put down and the days that it was put down - so I didn't get a ticket.
The yard was the only truly green spot in the area last year.

Until I can see it is keeping the ground more moist, I can't recommend this product.

I put this product on my lawn and the lawn is now much greener with no more water. The lawn looks great! A real saver during the current drought. Keep your lawns during the drought and use this product.
