Using Soil Polymers

    Superabsorbent polymers are long-lasting gels that can absorb hundreds of times their weight in water, releasing it as the soil dries. Mixed into potting soil, gels retain both water and dissolved nutrients to keep them available near plant roots. Soil polymers let you stretch the time between waterings by curbing evaporative water loss from the soil; they also prevent wide fluctuations of moisture between waterings.

    Do you need to use polymers? They're most useful for specific conditions: in drier climates or where dry spells can be expected; in soil mixes for moisture-loving plants; and when caretakers are known to be erratic! Containers that tend to dry out quickly—such as hanging baskets—can benefit from soil polymers, too.

    Unfortunately, you can't just add these gels to your existing houseplants, unless you're ready to repot them. You can buy commercial potting mixes with gels already incorporated, or buy them separately and mix them in yourself. It's important to stick to the manufacturer's recommended proportions; soil that stays too wet can kill your plants.

Transplanting
   
Use two ounces of Aquadiamonds granular per one foot of root-ball. Mix one half the amount around the planting hole, mix balance with backfill. Do not amend the top two inches of the backfill with polymer. Water liberally. Rate should be slightly increased to two to three ounces per one foot of root-ball in sandy soils. 

Flower Beds - Ornamental Gardens
   
There are two methods to treat broad areas. The most effective method is to sprinkle a small amount (1/2 tsp.) of Aquadiamonds in the plant hole. Water plants liberally to activate the polymer. Another method is to apply up to one pound of Aquadiamonds per 100 square feet of ground area. Spread the polymer and work into the soil at a depth of three to four inches. For bulk soil mixing use 2 pounds per cubic yard of soil.

    

Directions for Lawns and Sod:
 
Work, break up and level the soil to be planted with grass.
 
Spread Aquadiamonds on the surface of the soil.  The polymer may be broadcast or applied with a fertilizer spreader for a more even distribution.

 You'll use 30-50 grams per square meter of total area..  You'll probably want to use the Aquadiamonds 35K2 (medium grade) depending on the type of soil that you'll be laying the sod in.  1 - 55 lbs. bag goes a long way.

 
Work the Aquadiamonds into the soil to a maximum depth of 10 cm.  This can be done by hand, with a spade or mechanically with a disc plow or rototiller.
 
Seed the lawn or lay the sod.  Roll the soil to compact it.
 
Use fertilizers if needed.
