Sod Installer


New Business

Tanya Reid reports application of Soil Amendment during her company’s sod installations acts as her best “salesman”. This was especially true for the new housing development project described below where the competition was working nearby. Tanya Reid credits Soil Amendment with success where the competitor’s lawn failed. 


Tanya’s company completed a sod installation during June 21-29, 2016 in Western New York.  Weather conditions were the hottest of the summer with a typical high of 92°F and a low of 76°F.  The sod supplier cautioned there was a high risk of new lawn failure. He said, “Due to the hot temperatures, plan on replacing all of this sod in the fall. It is way too hot for it to survive.” Once the ground was graded and prepared for sod installation, all areas of topsoil were watered with a Soil Amendment water mixture of 1:1000 sufficient to moisten the soil. Then, the newly installed sod was watered thoroughly throughout the entire process. At intervals, the completed area was sprayed with the same Soil Amendment water mixture. The application of the same Soil Amendment water mixture was repeated after 1 week.   Then normal watering was used adjusted for rainfall and temperature.  The result was a deeply-rooted, lush, healthy, thick stand of grass. Results were noticeably superior to untreated, nearby, newly sodded lawns.  The Soil Amendment treated lawn thrived under hot, dry, no-rain conditions. 

Tanya Reid’s Explanation

Soil Amendment enables grass to attract, hold and exchange positively charged particles (cations) of magnesium, calcium, carbon, trace minerals and other nutrients in a manner that allows roots to more easily absorb them. Through this process of cationic exchange, Soil Amendment stimulates natural growth of plants at the cellular level. This encourages increased root size allowing more efficient uptake of nutrients and moisture to improve stamina in the plant. Soil Amendment supplies the plant a useful source of plant growth stimulators and amino acids. The growth stimulators include naturally occurring levels of auxin, gibberellin and cytokinin plant hormones. These are used by the plant to regulate plant growth, cell division in roots and shoots.  Stronger plants mean lush, thick lawns resistant to hot, dry conditions. 

Costs and Benefits

One gallon of Soil Amendment costing $110.00 was used for the sprayings described above.  These applications added <5% to the materials cost.  Tanya Reid believes Soil Amendment was both key to the success of this $14,000.00 lawn project and to beating the competition for other jobs. 

Benefits Summary

  • Reduces transplant shock.
  • Improves absorption of nutrients.
  • Speeds root growth.
  • Shortens time to a thick, lush lawn.

Establishes resistance to elevated temperatures and drought.

Dr. Jones writes: “I applied BioWash Soil Amendment to a variety of plants and was impressed with my results. In all cases, the treated plants outperformed the controls.


I applied Soil Amendment to the roots of 3,000 mal-nourished orange trees in Collier County Florida. The owner reported ample fertilization, but the trees were still in poor health, producing below normal yields. I added one (1) ounce per five (5) gallons of water and soaked the root areas. The cost was less than $1 per tree. Within six weeks, the trees were nearly disease-free and flourishing. The owners are pleased and anticipated an improved harvest.

Dr. Jones’ Explanation

Soil Amendment appears to be exceptionally effective dissolving (chelating) both organic and some inorganic ions in the soil. Because natural plants and synthetic fertilizers are incompatible, it is difficult for plants to absorb minerals such as iron, zinc and synthetic fertilizers. In some cases, plants absorb as little as 30% to 50% of applied fertilizers and minerals. As much as 50% to 70% of applied fertilizers remain unused. After multiple years of pesticide and synthetic fertilization applications, millions of acres of agricultural soils are saturated with synthetic contaminants. In many areas’ hair roots are unable to penetrate the soil and absorb minerals, moisture, inorganic nutrients or oxygen. Applying additional fertilizers does not help. Plants remain malnourished and yields are diminished. Much of the money spent on fertilization is wasted. BioWash Soil Amendment separates (chelates) and breaks down metallic and synthetic molecules into nano sized particles so small that plants can absorb them. Agronomists describe the process as “cation exchange.” Soil Amendment appears to be an exceptionally effective cation exchange stimulant. This even includes traces of metal ions such as residues of copper insecticides. This explains why growers are able to reduce the cost of fertilizers the first season.

Soil Amendment Benefits

  1. Restores soils to productivity.
  2. Improves absorption of nutrients.
  3. Reduces fertilizer cost ≤ BioWash Soil Amendment application cost.
  4. Increases yields.

Soil Amendment improves the absorption of nutrients and chelates the contaminants. It helps loosen clogged soils and restore those soils to productivity. A single application appears to loosen and restore the soil to arability and increased yields. The savings achieved in reduced fertilizer costs can exceed the price of the BioWash Soil Amendment application.

Note: Chelation: The word “chelate” is derived from the Greek word Chel or crab claw referring to the pincer movement in dissecting metallic ions. Chelation is a process of dissolving metal and/or synthetic ions. Chelating agents dissolve relatively insoluble iron and other mineral nutrients, making them more absorbable for plants. The benefit for plants: Increased availability and absorbability of nutrients, thus enhancing cation exchange.

“Hey Gary, wanted to give you feedback on the BioWash you sent me a couple of weeks ago. I sprayed it on a section of my Sage plants (about 50 established plants) and the results were amazing! We were able to harvest about twice as much as normal in about a weeks’ time. I’m ready to go with another order ASAP.  Thanks! Glad I saw your ad in Grower Talks!”

Bruce N. – Greenhouse Owner

Bruce N’s greenhouse supplies naturally, locally grown cut herbs to Las Vegas restaurants and resort hotels.

Bruce explains:

“Because of the growing process and the fact that herbs are harvested the same day they are delivered, you get a fresher, better tasting product with a longer shelf life.”

“In addition to the cut herbs, we grow potted herbs for living walls or displays within your restaurant or business.”
