Lawnporn Root Builder +
Lawnporn Root Builder+ is a premium quality natural seaweed concentrate developed specifically for turf. Freshly harvested South African seaweed Ecklonia Maxima, which has unique characteristics and is treated with a proprietary method of hormone extraction resulting in a biostimulant with ideal auxin to cytokinin ratio to trigger maximum root development.
Root Builder+ has the ideal naturally occurring auxin to cytokinin ratio (300:1) that achieves the greatest root growth response. This results in a more efficient soil nutrient uptake from the new root tips and extended root mass of the plant. The plant naturally responds to the extended root system and the enhanced nutrient uptake with better upper plant growth, more shoots, improved plant health and stress tolerance.
Perth’s abrasive sandy soils can damage the tips of baby lawn roots. Lawnporn Root Builder + will help to protect these roots.
How to Use
You can mix Root Builder with Launch+ or Green Light Fertilisers.
If using plant growth regulator, can be tank-mixed with Green Light. A Green Light/Root Builder/PGR is a very good treatment to maintain a lower height for effectively managed turf.
Lawnporn Root Builder + is perfect to use going into summer. It will help the lawn manage water restrictions by promoting stronger roots. The better the root development – the better the lawn can source and take up water.
Root Builder will not replace water. You must still ensure you are giving your lawn the minimum amount of water required. See https://www.lawndoctor.com.au/free-catch-cups/ for more help on accurately knowing your retic systems water output.

Lawnporn Root Builder + is the commercial NuTurf product Folimax KelMAX. While the extraction process used by most other seaweed products destroys the contained auxins in preference to the cytokinins, KelMAX retains the integrity of the naturally occurring high auxin content only found in Ecklonia maxima seaweed. Auxins have the effect of triggering a root growth response in turf grass and cytokinins trigger shoot growth.
