One of their premier products, Hydretain® is a revolutionary soil moisture management technology that is designed to drastically reduce watering requirements of trees, shrubs, turfgrasses, flowers, indoor and outdoor plants and agricultural plants by as much as 50 percent or more.
“At Arborjet, we recognize that environmental responsibility and good stewardship are essential in sustaining our business, our customers and our planet.
