LazyMan™ Liquid Lawn Aerator is a uniquely formulated, high grade non-ionic, soil lawn aerator that will reduce crusting, loosen hard clay soils, aggregate sandy soil, and allow water and oxygen to better reach plant roots.
LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator is designed to decrease the surface tension between water and soil while improving the growth and activity of micro-organisms necessary for a healthy soil environment. Our liquid lawn aerator is so easy to use even a LazyMan™ can do it! Not only are you improving the soil, but you are adding mycorrhizae and humic acids to the turf or plants to make their environment healthier.
We added humic acids to our liquid lawn aerator so it will keep the soil aerated longer as well as add organic compost to the soil. Follow up treatments with our LazyMan™ Liquid Soil Conditioner are recommended, but we have found the humic acids with the liquid aerator have a synergistic effect and enhance the aeration process as well as adding organic matter to the soil.
Aeration is one of the keys to healthy grass growth. It permits essential water, air and nutrients to penetrate deep into the root zone (where they are needed). The deeper healthier root systems created generate thicker, greener grass. The enhanced functioning of the soils natural organic processes means that there is reduced need for fertilization.
Do not confuse our product with other products that claim to aerate the soil. LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator is NOT a wetting agent, it is NOT a surfactant, it is NOT a penetrant, and it is NOT a polyacrlyamide (PAM). Nor does LazyMan contain Ammonium Laureth Sulfate which is a fancy name for soap. Other products on the market are nothing more then soap and they put "ammonium laureth sulfate" on the label to look impressive because most people have no idea what that is. If the product is a quart and claims to aerate nearly an entire acre you should be wary. This is not possible.
LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator forms water stable aggregates in the soil. Aggregate stability refers to the ability of soil aggregates to resist degradation from raindrops, flowing water, windblown sand grains, vehicle traffic, and trampling can break apart soil aggregates, exposing organic matter to decomposition and loss. Water stable aggregates are critical to erosion resistance, water availability, and root growth. Soil with stable aggregates at the surface are more resistant to water erosion than other soils, both because soil particles are less likely to be detached and because the rate of water infiltration tends to be higher on well aggregated soils. Unstable aggregates disperse during rainstorms, then form a hard physical crust when the soil dries. Physical crusts restrict seedling emergence because they have few pores for root growth. Large, water stable aggregates can resist degradation and removal by wind better than small, weak ones. See our section on, "How It Works" below.

Liquid Lawn Aerator Benefits
BENEFITS TO THE SOIL:
LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator not only aerates, but it also helps condition the soil. Soil that is conditioned with LazyMan has increased soil moisture retention, less crusting and soil compaction, improved soil aeration, and better soil structure. Soil particles treated with LazyMan™ will bond together, or aggregate, to produce balance in the soil structure.
BENEFITS TO THE TURF OR CROP:
The strength of any turf, plant, or crop is a good foundation in the soil. LazyMan™ improves the foundation of the soil and thus has a powerful impact on turf and crop quality. LazyMan™ treated soils become loose and friable. The result is a plant with increased root mass that is more efficient in utilizing moisture and nutrient uptake. These healthy roots lead to a healthy plant and ultimately may produce higher yields.
BENEFITS FOR WATER:
LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator helps water penetrate the soil by reducing the surface tension between the water and soil. Better water penetration reduces runoff and erosion while saving water. LazyMan is also formulated to increase the activity of soil microorganisms. Increased micro-organism activity improves the water holding capacity of the soil. This leads to reduced water stress and greater drought resistance.
LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator is a liquid, polymer and humic acid mixture that loosens and aerates compacted soils, even in high traffic areas or where plant growth is difficult to maintain, while at the same time adds beneficial micro-organisms to the soil.
The effects of one application are long-lasting because the polymers are stable, with a combined molecular weight of 20,000. Okay, so maybe you don't know (or care) what that means, but if you are not familiar with LazyMan liquid lawn aerator, you probably have seen nothing like it before because it is entirely unique--different from anything else on the market.
Don't confuse it with products that are surfactants, wetting agents, polyacrylamides (PAMs) or penetrants. LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator is scientifically designed to do much more and last much longer than those other products. LazyMan™ liquid lawn aerator increases beneficial aerobic soil microorganism activity as well. Earthworm size and population actually increase after Lazy Man liquid lawn aerator applications due to a better living environment. (Think what it will do for your turf.)
How Liquid Lawn Aerator Works
LazyMan™ Liquid Lawn Aerator is made up of a solution – similar to the electrolytes found in sports drinks, but much, much more complicated. These polymers (very complicated) are HUGE--over 20,000 combined molecular weight.
Most of these substances are hydrophilic--they LOVE water. One of the polymers is strongly hydrophobic (runs away from water.) But because of their high molecular weight, they're very, very stable. So when you mix it with water and spray it on turf, the hydrophobic polymers run from the water, but the hydrophilic polymers in the chain attach themselves to the water (and they aren't coming off for a long, long, time) so they get dragged along with the hydrophobic polymers leading the way!
Think of it this way. Did you ever play with two magnets when you were a kid? If you aimed the right end at the wrong end of the other one, it pushed it. That's what happens when Lazy Man gets down in the dirt. The negative and the positive push each other along, and they open up pathways in the soil. Both the hydrophobic quality and gravity work together, moving, stopping, moving, stopping, until the polymers finally breaks down...which usually doesn't happen for about a year (depends on variables, like weather...)
Also, if you have a high sodium content in your soil (usually from your water source,) sodium causes compaction, and it also reduces nutrient absorption by the turf. Sodium is positively charged, while clay is negatively charged, so the sodium smashes the clay together. LazyMan liquid lawn aerator grabs onto the sodium and removes it to a lower level so that it's out of the way of the plant root zone. And that's a benefit you will never get from mechanical aeration! Additionally, LazyMan liquid lawn aerator is fortified with humic acids to condition the soil and stimulate beneficial aerobic soil microorganism activity. The humic acids have a synergistic effect with the liquid aerator and enhance the aeration process as well as make the soil healthier and more porous for the long term.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
This depends on the starting point of your soil, but if you have decent topsoil that has just become compacted over time, the initial application should reach a depth of about 6 inches. Each application after that should penetrate an extra inch or two at a time. If you have very hard and compacted soil to begin with, increase the application rate by about 50% and reapply 1 - 2 weeks later after the initial application is watered in.

LazyMan™ Liquid Lawn Aerator Advantage
Two distinct advantages of LazyMan™ products is that it contains Hydra-Hume, which is an extremely concentrated form of humic acids, as well as mycorrhizae. Humic acids give your soil and plants a definite advantage. Since it a plant biostimulant and soil enhancer, spraying or drenching Hydra-Hume increases both soil fertility and plant growth. Humic acids helps enhance soil ionic exchange capacity and microbial activity, improves drainage and reduces salt damage. This, in turn, has a very positive effect on plant growth and health by enhancing the microbial activities in the soil and providing it with organic matter.
LazyMan Liquid Lawn Aerator With Mycorrhizae:
Mycorrhizae are symbiotic soil fungi, present in most soils, that attach themselves directly onto the roots of most plants. They help the host plants absorb more water and nutrients while the host plants provide food for the fungi. Because the surface area of the hyphae, the feeding structures of the mycorrhizae, may be several hundred times the surface area of the roots, the mycorrhizae can feed on a larger soil mass than the roots and they do so more thoroughly. Mycorrhizae have the potential to be a central nutritional source for the host plant.
If the conditions are right, a viable mycorrrhizae colony can help the plant become more vigorous, more salt tolerant, less fertilizer dependent and more tolerant of chronic low moisture. The addition of mycorrhizal fungi spores to transplant roots, garden soils, potting soil, lawns, or seeded crops will ensure the presence of these valuable plant allies. The difference in plant health and performance can be dramatic, especially when dealing with less-than-perfect soils.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Dilute 3 to 6 ounces of LazyMan™ Liquid Lawn Aerator with water for each 1,000 square feet or 1 to 2 gallons per acre of soil to be treated. Apply every 3 to 4 months, depending on traffic or activity level. May be applied with hose-end sprayer, backpack sprayer, hand held sprayer, or through irrigation system. If sprayed, a thorough watering should follow application. After soil permeability and fertility levels have been reached, follow up treatments with just 1 to 2 ounces per 1,000 square feet is sufficient.
You can apply LazyMan during any time of the year as long as the ground isn't frozen. We recommend applying it when day time temperatures are a minimum of 35 degrees. When there is no rainfall (summer), water ground 15 minutes after applying the product.
