Lawnsmith Yucca Wetta - Wetting Agent
  • Description
  • Delivery and Returns
  • Reviews

For application by sprayer or watering can:

  • Yucca is a natural liquid plant wetting agent for hard to wet soils
  • Improves rain and water penetration in to dry soils
  • Increases water retention in otherwise dry or problem soils
  • Beneficial to grass; improves root growth and depth
  • Increases biological activity in soils
  • Used on professional sports turf world wide
  • Easily applied by watering can with sprinkle bar or by sprayer
  • To be repeated every 4 weeks until desired result is achieved

As a Preventative for Recurring Conditions, Fairy Rings & Dry Patch

  • Start treatment around May time prior to soil drying.
  • Spike problem area with garden fork, aerator sandals or rolling aerator
  • Apply recommended dose of YUCCA wetting agent
  • Water after 7-10 days if no rain appears
  • Repeat every 4 weeks to maintain grass growth and water penetration
  • Seed and fertilise area after first application if no grass present
  • Maintain a good fertiliser programme and mow regularly on medium to high

For Treatment of Existing Problems

For dry patchy summer lawns, under trees or prior to seeding dry areas; start treatment at the first signs of dryness and poor grass recovery or 2-3 weeks prior to seeding. Treat as above until grass recovers with as much additional spiking as possible. Spike depth will be shallow initially as the ground will be hard. As water starts penetrating you should be able to spike deeper.

How much do I need?

Plan on at least 3 applications to a problem area. Long term conditions in older lawns may need treating every month from April to August (5 applications). This means typically you would need to order enough to treat the total area 3 to 5 times in any one year. This product has a shelf life of 3 years.

Other uses

  • Anywhere that there is a dry soil problem, perhaps after removing large fibrous plants, shrubs, bushes or trees
  • Around dead tree stumps
  • Around ants nests - useful prior to applying soluble ant killer
  • To re-wet hanging baskets and tubs
  • Also reduces run-off in hanging baskets and tubs by improving permeability

Either use at the recommended rate for dry patch and fairy rings or if treating hanging baskets water as normal but put 20ml Yucca Wetta in 10 litres water once. Repeat after 4 weeks if needed.

I use Mosskiller, Spring/summer/autumn feed,
also equipment supplied such as sprayer, fertiliser spreader, lawn hand scarifier.
Again helpful info on using equipment including settings for applicators.
I would recommend this website/supplier to anyone with a lawn big or small.
I never write reviews but this is a deserved exception

Hard to tell at the moment, I applied it as per the instructions on the bottle.
Waiting to see if it makes a difference during this current hot weather.

I use Yucca Wetta to help improve moisture retention across several very dry areas in my lawn. Each time I have used it, I have seen an improvement and grass has grown more healthily. Very useful product.

Treating Dry Patch.
Two applications and there does seem to be some improvement, but will need a full season to sensibly evaluate

Not sure if I think this product has worked or not.
Have applied it to my lawn which has been severely affected by all the hot, dry weather but have since applied fertiliser to help restore the grass. The lawn is now looking better but I think it is probably the fertiliser which has made the difference.

Only used it once so far in the middle of a dry spell. As far as I can see the soil does not seem too dry.

Cracks tend to appear in my garden when the weather is dry. So far so good...

I have not tried the product yet, as the conditions are not ready.but I have great expectations and hope in controlling my fairy rings in my lawn. Any professional advice you can offer would be welcome.
