First and foremost, both FOURPlay and Hydretain are going to help you get through those long hot summer days by assisting your lawn in making the most of the water you’re feeding it.
Hydretain converts soil moisture vapor into plant-usable water droplets, by making use of moisture that would otherwise be lost to evaporation. This is going to reduce your watering and aid your lawn in taking full advantage of the water it is getting.
Simply put, FOURPlay is a beefed-up version of Hydretain with a few extra bells and whistles. It is 76% Hydretain, 9.5% SeaXtra, 4.5% Humate, and 10% non-ionic surfactant. As you can see, FOURPlay is mostly Hydretain! The difference is that it includes a few extra nutrients to really spoon-feed your lawn the good stuff.
If you’re already utilizing the bio-stimulant pack, your lawn is getting the benefits of sea kelp and humic12 from those applications. So with the addition of Hydretain, you are pushing those results or you are adding to the goodness with FOURPlay.
FOURPlay also includes a surfactant. Surfactants help water effectively penetrate the soil by reducing the surface tension of water. This is going to help get your water deeper faster. As you can see in the video below, Allyn utilized a simple, easy-to-get product to be his penetrator for his Hydretain - Dawn dish soap! Watch the video to see how it works:

Now there is a cost difference between the two products to account for those extra goodies in the FOURPlay. No matter which product you go with your lawn will thank you!
