Has anyone applied this to their grass to increase watering efficiency? Our lawn guy is recommending that we treat our Zoysia with this to use our water more efficiently. If I understand correctly Tricure is a surfactant of some "flavour" and golf courses use it routinely.

The treatments are relatively inexpensive and if it will help keep the grass alive during the drought and the watering more efficient, it seems like a good idea. Just want to know if anyone has any experience with the product.

As always, thanks for your advice, observations and "comments"

Never heard of it until I read your post. This is our fourth record-setting summer here and I would have thought a neighbor would have mentioned it...IF it were a safe and effective 'solution'. Looks like it is a surfactant...basically allows the water to penetrate to the roots more quickly rather than the water sitting on top and evaporating.

It doesn't sound like a 'cure' for anything, just one way to use water more efficiently. Interestingly, an 'old timers' approach is to use liquid Ivory soap for the same purpose. I don't have experience with either, so I can't offer a recommendation.

Good luck. We're gonna need more than Tricure to get us through a week of 105 degree temps!
