Great products from PD

I have been using this in combination with other liquids from PD - Stimulizer, Quantum H, Seaweed secrets, and liquid iron. They have worked great and my lawn and plants and healthy, lush and tolerant of all weather conditions. Highly recommend getting all these and spraying using a knapsack every 2-4 weeks.

QLD Summers Are HOT!
By: Nathan on 28 December 2020
Natured Soil wetter is helping bring my Buffalo back from this years Reno!
After years of Hydrophobic Soil This little Gem is helping AL-HOT!
By: Nick on 27 December 2020
When moving into our newly built home I noticed the turf prep was quite horrendous. Full of clay and builders waste. I was worried our new wintergreen wouldn’t take due to the clay so opted for this soil wetter to help with moisture retention and to break down some of the clay soil. After spraying, my lawn became more drought resistant and instead of going blue after one day of no water is now happily soaking up the left over moisture for longer periods of time. Great product and has helped with the intake of the other products purchased.
Back in the line up
By: Sean on 4 December 2020
Haven’t used the NSW for a while due to having other products still in the shed. Repurchased with the Ben Sims back , and straight away it’s cleared up current dry patch and aided water absorption. Great gear Adam !
By: David on 1 December 2020
We recently had new turf laid and this product was recommended by our landscaper as the soil was very hard and dry. 3 weeks on, and our lawn is beautiful, lush and green even with Sydney's 40 degree days. The roots have taken to the soil beautifully. Would definitely recommend this product to help with hard, dry soil.
By: Mitchell on 28 November 2020
Having ordered this for the first time I have been impressed with the assistance this product has provided in the health of my lawn.
Soil have improved, ordering more
By: Benjamin on 27 November 2020
Starting using on a garden bed that is relatively shallow and gets a lot of sun. Have noticed planting new plants today its much more moist below the surface and soil health has improved. Buying more now.

Nature's Soil Wetter
By: Michael on 6 August 2020
I have found this really easy to use when mixing and applying. The solutions does not bubble up everywhere when filling up the backpack with water and already noticing great results. Great product.
For use on hydrophobic soils
By: Jerome on 27 July 2020
Any extended period of dryness causes soils to become hydrophobic (repels water). To overcome this a simple application of this will help improve soil structure and water retention. Have had great success on indoor pot plants and also lawns using this
Nature's Soil Wetter
By: John on 30 June 2020
Great value and quality product. Easy to use and long lasting. Highly recommended wetting agent.
By: Aaron on 21 June 2020
Product works great had bad hydrophobic soil, with just a single application the results were instant! Water penetrates no worries now.
Works a treat
By: Ellie on 9 June 2020
I have been using this and have seen a great improvement with both my turf and my veggies.
Noted Water Penetration
By: Wayne Dearness on 28 May 2020
I have used mainly granular soil wetters and Bunnings products in the past with varied success on my lawn, particularly now in the dry winter months when some areas of my lawn suffer from hydrophobic soil. The Natures Soil Wetter has worked well after a couple of sprays, particularly when I pre-wet the soil as deep as possible before applying. I am happy with this product and will buy again.
Goodbye hydrophobic soil!
By: bradley on 8 May 2020
Noticed an instant difference with my pot plants and garden beds soil, the water soaked straight in!
A helping hand during drought

By: Kyle on 23 April 2020
I have hydrophobic soil and this helped heaps can actually notice better water retention and holding water nicely. 5 Stars
Works very well - Highly recommended
By: Adrian on 24 March 2020
I've applied this to a section of my lawn to see how it went. I've noticed it holds the water in the soil very well and for long periods and the lawn has been growing very well as a result. It's a great product and has worked very well for me, highly recommend it!
Significantly Reduced Water Consumption
By: Jesse on 21 March 2020
Before I used this product I could water everyday and still not achieve the results I have achieved watering once to twice a week. My soil was hydrophobic and water would just repel off the surface and accumulate in the low spots. Since applying this I am seeing significantly improved moisture retention in my soil with limited watering.
#1 Soil wetter
By: Benn on 23 February 2020
I have used a few wetter since doing a Reno in September, I have found this one to be the best, I also like you can mix it in with other PD products saving application time.
A great soil wetter
By: Liam on 16 February 2020
I've used this product for two apps so far and am incredibly happy with the results, being based in WA we have very sandy soil and wetters are an absolute necessity, Having a natural product that can be tank mixed with the rest of my monthly lawn app is excellent: activa8mate/seawedd secrets/stimulizer/ natures soil wetter. Put these together, spray and pray and watch your lawn thrive!!!
Nature's soil wetter
By: PIL JAE on 30 January 2020
just gave the lawn a mow and then watered with "Nature's Soil Wetter" for the first time. Literally instant results. if you're going to use a watering can, fill it 80% before adding the wetter because if you have a high pressure tap, it will foam the water. Got a ranger of other products and cant wait to try em out.
By: Alistair Pitkin on 20 January 2020
Seems to be very effective and has helped cut down the amount of watering my lawn needs. Great to use with a new lawn to help reduce the amount of watering needed and it's helped all the rain we've had over the past few days soak straight in.
Nature’s Soil Wetter
By: Phil Gilmore on 9 January 2020
I’ve been applying this product to my lawn for some time. Following the floods in Townsville in early 2019, after over 2000mm of rain in 3 weeks, my soil became very hydrophobic. The rain washed every bit of goodness out of the soil. When it finally dried out the entire lawn was suffering. I noticed the water from the irrigation wasn’t making any difference. After a couple of applications of nature’s soil wetter over a 3 week period the turn around was remarkable. I knew it was great stuff though having now tested it under very stressed soil conditions I’m adamant it’s a must have in my lawn care plan.
Best soil wetter
By: Tim on 20 December 2019
Recently heard about this product after telling a family member that I had been having to water my grass every day during these boiling summer days just to keep it looking half ok! I’ve tried other soil wetters with no results. Can’t wait to start using less water!!
By: Mohamed on 13 December 2019
Only very recently found out of this product which is kind on nature but highly efficient on soil.
Reduces my watering
By: Aaron on 24 November 2019
Since using this, I've been able to water less and still get great results.
When I first used it, I missed some spots in my lawn, and those spots need a lot more watering.
By: Scott on 8 November 2019
This is my go to product to withstand this QLD heat, ensures the water gets deep down for the roots to follow the moisture. Have used others but this is the best by far and sensational value for money
By: anthony on 24 October 2019
Evened out dry areas in my lawn and have been able to cut back on watering schedule. Also worked in my garden beds.
Watering made easy.
By: Rhys on 8 October 2019
5 Stars - This has made my watering schedule much more manageable and my soil loves it!
Bring on the Rain!
By: Paul on 18 September 2019
Excellent value for money and can’t wait to save some water by not needing to water so much.
By: Tyler on 12 September 2019
Great quality product, working wonders!
Valve for money!
By: Luke on 4 September 2019
Excellent soil wetter at a bargain price
By: Tom on 19 August 2019
Happy with how this product is performing on my lawn as well as client lawns. Great for altering soil structure and reducing the need to water during those hotter periods. Great value for money and definitely helps in slashing those water bills.
Awesome for saving money on water
By: Giang on 8 August 2019
I use this to help save myself having to water it. Only been watering once every 10 days during Winter and my grass still looks great. It really helps with the soil underneath by allowing water to penetrate it well and not just pool up
By: scott on 2 August 2019
used this for the first time and is the best soil wetter ive used
Get that water in the ground
By: phillip on 18 June 2019
A great product when you want the water to soak in and be used and not just run off or pool on the lawn
Best on the market
By: Teena on 4 June 2019
Best soil wetter on the market really happy with the results
Happy with this product
By: Shannon on 3 June 2019
Very happy with this product so far. Seems to have helped my lawn and garden retain water more then other products. Very for money is great with all plant doctor products!
Great help during a dry summer
By: Rebecca on 25 April 2019
This product really helped my lawn during one of the driest summers in recent time. It helped the lawn to utilise what little rainfall we did get and ensured it was still in good condition coming into winter.
By: Shayne on 11 April 2019
A proper soil wetter!! Mixes well with all the other products and makes a huge difference to penetration. Happy with.
By: Paul on 27 March 2019
Amazing product. I have used this product through really hot temps and the soil has become a lot more responsive to the intake of water and rain. I would not go through a summer without applications of Natures Soil Wetter.
Water saving champion
By: Matthew on 23 March 2019
This stuff is awesome, really noticed the difference to the lawn's ability to retain water for longer. Excellent service and super fast delivery. Highly recommended.
Best of its kind
By: Jonathan on 21 March 2019
Hands down the best soil wetter with respect to value for money, concentrated to takes up minimal space and the fact it has without doubt changed my clay based soil profile. My lawn actually takes it water no matter how dry and retains water beyond belief. Very happy with this stuff and about to order more.
By: Jennifer on 19 March 2019
I used this through summer monthly and it has helped our lawn to no end. It’s the best soil wetter on the market and we wouldn’t be without it from now on
By: Tyron on 13 March 2019
I have watered my lawn only twice. In three weeks and during this heat it’s still holding up. Very easy to apply. Great bang for your buck
By: Michael on 10 March 2019
Wow the difference this has made to my lawn is amazing im am so happy with the results. Plus its also great value for money when you compare it to other products.
Really great product
By: Dafydd on 21 February 2019
Helped my clay type soil hold the water, started to grow grass where it wasnt able to before. All of plant doctors products are awesome.
Easier application than granular app
By: Leo on 19 February 2019
Used to use many types of granular products for my lawn. It used to take me hours to apply and then water in. With NSW, i could apply with a 2 litre spray bottle and walk away with confidence. Plus it has a multitude of added benefits. This has helped with my alkaline lawn soil in changing its ph. So im over the moon with its superiority.
Natures Soul Wetter Solution
By: Ben on 7 February 2019
In order to reduce my water bill I used this product. The effect on the soil was dramatic and immediate. The requirement for water was reduced immediately and it seems from the info that there are benefits at soil level that i expect to see as the months go on. Certainly the best first step approach i have done!
The disadvantage is that it required wateringcan application for my home garden which was heavy work.
I will continue to use this product as I correct my dry soil patches!
By: Jake on 30 January 2019
I found out my soil was hydrophobic, the retention of moisture over long hot days over Christmas has improved dramatically. I use to come home to monstrous patches of "dry" grass that would almost cover my entire 200m of zoysia. I haven't changed water schedule. But, now after nearly 2 months of using this product, the patches are entirely gone and moisture is deep down in the soil days after a water! (Keep in mind its only gotten hotter over the last few months!)
I've also used it to recover a poisoned to straw patch of turf when trying to eliminate paspalum. It's been 3 weeks since I completely killed those patches and now you don't even notice them (used in conjunction with other PD products in the healing process).
Dont let your water get away!
By: Joshua on 18 January 2019
I’ve been using Natures Soil Wetter for the past 8 weeks and have noticed a considerable improvement in the growth and health of my lawn. Especially during the recent extreme temps, it’s helped the ground accept the water instead of letting it run away. Combined with Activ8mate and Seaweed secrets, it’s a winning combo at very affordable rates.
Reducing my water bill
By: Peter on 14 January 2019
I have started using Natures Soil Wetter (NSW) in conjunction with Active8Mate, Seaweed Secrets and Champion, and my lawn is the hardiest its ever been. Considering all the products being used together, its hard to gauge the particular impact of one product over another. However, despite these monstrous summer temperatures (Sydney 2018/2019) I appear to be watering the lawn less regularly, and the grass is drying out FAR, FAR less compared to previous years. Of all the PD products in the shed, NSW is probably the most essential. Get Some!
By: Michael on 2 January 2019
Use this on my buffalo lawn and has helped my water my lawn less. It hold the nutrients on the soil and continuously feed the lawn. I know its helped with the bare patches on the grass from our dog. After putting this down the Soil looks darker and healthier and the grass is growing really well.
Superior to other soil wetters in my opinion
By: Justin on 24 December 2018
This product works a treat. I have used other products in the past with ok results, however this product seems to have worked and worked straight away! Awesome!
By: Lia on 23 December 2018
I've tried many different soil wetters before being put on to plant doctors range. Works a treat and doesn't break the bank, 10/10
By: Emma on 13 December 2018
Great natural soil wetter. Far better than other market place alternatives
4 December 2018
You can apply this stuff all over your garden. Really good bang for your buck with this stuff. Did get the 4L container after reading the reviews.
By: Richard on 1 December 2018
This stuff works better than other soil wetters imo. A little goes a long way and can be used on turf and garden beds and pots! Like Linda I made the mistake of only buying 1 litre! I now have to get 4 litres next cos this stuff is super important!
Finally.... An effective non petroleum based Soil
By: Tony on 30 November 2018
We have been looking for an alternative to petroleum based soil wetters. Mixture rate is the same if not better than the alternative so it is an effective and offers value for money.
Effective and Holostic approach to Fertiliser Mana
By: Tony on 30 November 2018
We have made a conscious decision to purchase a great fertiliser with outstanding results for our lawn. The product is well priced and in our mind has there is no comparable product offeribg such high quality ingredients in industry.
By: Corey on 28 November 2018
Have spent time and money on other products, this is the best you can now see the water going into the soil instead of running away cheers
Made the biggest difference to my soil
By: Daryn on 20 November 2018
Spent a lot of time and money other products prior to using NSW to improve my soil condition, this stuff works.
Great for hydrophobic soil
By: Kom on 19 November 2018
Immediate improvement in wetting some very dry hydrophobic potting mix I had, water literally sat on top and poured off until I applied this product. Only mistake was not purchasing a larger size!
A MUST HAVE
By: Daniel on 12 November 2018
I’ve tried a lot of different wetting agents and this is by far the best product I’ve used. One application completely changed a hydrophobic garden bed. Using natures soil wetter on my lawn has stopped the dry spots i get on hot summer days. This product is a must have. Combine it with seaweed secrets and activ8mate and you have the best of everything
By: dimitrios on 8 November 2018
Easy to use and saves water which save $$$
By: Trent on 5 November 2018
I use this every 3 months and love it. It’s completly changed our soil profile in our clay based lawn out front; we went from 1-2 the lawn to being weeds to full grass lawn due to this and the other plant Doctor products I use.
I’ll be buying bulk next time so I never run out..... A1 product.
Easy to use
By: Mathew on 4 November 2018
It has greatly improved my hydrophobic, hard to wet soils. very little water run off compared to no use.
By: Brett on 31 October 2018
I use this as part of my lawn care program, it has helped my soil retain more moisture.. prior to using my soil was dry within a couple of days of watering, now it is still retaining moisture for the whole week..
Love the plant doctors range of all natural products!!
By: Mark on 30 October 2018
Have applied this soil wetter for the first time and the dry patches on my lawn were gone in less than a week. Highly recommend
Makes a difference
By: Milan on 23 October 2018
I've noticed much less water run off and pooling since using this product, it has helped and made a significant difference!
This stuff works
