Aquasmart and lawns
When I installed my new zoysia palisades lawn, a lawn specialist said that they were now using a product call aqua smart on baseball fields to reduce compaction and retain water. The product is basically a polymer coated silica that retains a crazy amount of water. I was told that most MLB fields now use it. I bought some, but was too nervous to do the full application during the tilling Proccess. I have a small yard, and since it is getting warmer here, 70s to 50s already, I was inking of doing the full recommended topical treatment they recommend. I will do it while spike aerating and fertilizing. I have heavy clay soil which has compacted dramatically since sodding 5 months ago. Rock hard in some places, with still dormant grass, soft and green elsewhere. Aeration seems like a no brainier, but I wanted to see if anyone else had used aqua smart and if there is anything I should consider.
