Dyeing to see where you have treated your lawn
Professional Turf Managers have been using Spray Pattern Indicator Dyes for decades but these have never been widely available before to the amateur lawn owner.
Turf Managers also use what is called a foam bout marker on their large sprayers which leaves a trace blob of foam down the travelled run of the fairway so that the operator can match up with the last pass on the return run. The foam soon disappears after an hour via sunlight.
The dye is a harmless blue colourant that has been specially developed to indicate exactly where the pesticide or fertiliser has been applied. This significantly reduces over lapping, missed areas, and prevents striping and scorching whilst greatly reducing chemical wastage.
A spray colourant will allow you to see where you have sprayed, where you have missed, where you should not have sprayed, when your sprayer is clean and in the unlikely event, where you may have contaminated yourself. So many benefits in one product!
Use at the rate at one gram per litre of spray solution. One gram is measured out by turning the bottle clockwise one revolution. More dye may be added to the garden sprayer if required. Use with all liquid garden horticultural treatment products on turf, pathways, vegetation (not petals). For us in all garden sprayers and knapsacks.
The spray dye really takes the hard work matching up and guess work out and will save you money right away. £9.99 per 80 gram box, sufficient to colour up to 80 Litres of spray solution.
