And if you're a homeowner, Omega is the perfect product to keep your lawn grasses looking beautiful throughout the hot summer months.
How Omega Works
When you feed the soil in the presence of stress, like heat and unpredictable rainfall, you energize microorganisms and promote nutrient uptake to maximize the potential of grass. This builds fertile soil that is resilient to environmental changes.
Regardless of lawn type, to build an optimal soil structure, proper carbon levels and activity in the soil's indigenous microbes are essential. Omega contains a safe, natural mixture of these, adding necessary ingredients like humic acid to stimulate plant and root growth rapidly. By unlocking existing nutrients and maximizing uptake from previous applications, Omega promotes a fertile growing environment that makes the most of your other inputs.
Omega also addresses thatch buildup, breaks down other organic matter, aerates soil to continue delivering oxygen and valuable nutrients to the root zone, relieves compacted soil and addresses salt accumulations. Even applying a thin layer of Omega delivers usable food to your lawn to support root growth, soil energy and biological activity.
Omega is designed to boost conventional turf and erosion control programs. We have studied the results of the applications, made tissue samples and monitored the application rates. The results continue to prove that Omega will take your lawns, golf course greens and hydroseeding jobs to the next level.
Our concentrated solutions provide cost effectiveness throughout lawn and garden care. Since our lawn products are typically diluted at a 1:20 product to water ratio, a little goes a long way! Check out our complete lawn program lineup for more natural products to work alongside Omega.
How Omega Impacts Soil Structure
Soil texture is important because it determines the success of plant growth. Poor soils typically have a bad soil texture and may be described as "clumpy soil," but soil activators like Omega can aerate and break up soils like this. Even sandy soil can benefit from soil activators when the soil receives added nutrients that may otherwise leach through easily.
Omega improves soil structure by increasing water retention, aerating the soil and adding plant nutrients. Like many soil activators, it improves poor soils by improving the way soil particles fit together and adding organic matter throughout.
Omega can break up clay soils and free up nutrients to be more available to plant roots. Overall, soil activators improve soil structure in poor soils by adding more living organisms and minerals. Improved soil means that the soil is more loose and "crumbly," but holds together when damp and can sustain plant roots. Omega improves poor soils by addressing their structure.
Humic acid helps improve soil structure by adding new microbes to those already existing in the soil. In addition to lawns, indoor plants, potted plants and gardens can benefit from this improved structure as well.
Other Products in Liquid Form
If you have grass clippings or thatch buildup to address, we recommend using the next step in our natural lawn care program, Revival. This product has a similar base to Omega, but it includes healthy microbial activity specifically selected to address thatch buildup and lawn aeration at the end of the summer.
If you're looking for a compost tea, consider one of our other liquid formulations, Ultimate Tea. It helps accelerate the decomposition of compost piles through added biology. Just spray it directly onto your compost piles.
How Omega is Different from Commercial Soil Activators
Inorganic fertilizers and soil activators often include chemicals that can harm the environment in the long run. In our "fast green" world, we've built up an illusion that lawn products should make our grass look green instantly. This is due to many high nitrogen fertilizers pumping grass with too much nitrogen. While this result may give you instant gratification, it does little for soil improvement and actually harms the environment through excess nutrient runoff.
Omega focuses on the true health of the soil so that you can have healthy root growth and plant growth for the long run. Products like Omega and Medina Soil Activator are considered biological activators because of a complex bio catalyst process they initiate in the soil. They also address soil health instead of only focusing on fast, visible results.
Alternate Omega with FertALive for Maximum Lawn Benefits
For maximum performance, we recommend using Omega Soil Activator with FertALive Liquid Humic Acid Organic Fertilizer. The combination is the ideal mix for your yard and all grasses. This combination of Omega with the fertilizing action of FertALive is the ideal mix to help your grasses thrive. Both products are easy-to-apply concentrations and will make your property look like a new lawn.

Disadvantages of Synthetic Fertilizers
Southland Organics turf and lawn care products leverage our three core features to supercharge soil with the building blocks turf grass needs to thrive.
The added beneficial microbes help decompose residual pesticides and herbicides and unlock bound nutrients in the soil. This makes nutrients available to plants in simpler, more easily absorbed forms. Microbes amplify conventional programs by making your inputs work harder for longer.
Organic acids and top-quality, organic carbon work to break surface tension of compacted soils and deliver oxygen to the root zone. Grass grows deeper roots in oxygenated soil, helping it resist disease and overtake weeds.
Carbon is the main building block of all organic life. In fact, 50% of plant life is made up of carbon. Carbon feeds microbes and is critical to microbial health. The microbes, in turn, assimilate nutrients and deliver them to the roots for growth and development. Carbon is the ultimate macro element that lawns need to thrive.
With these three secret ingredients, plants develop deeper roots, retain water, resist disease and pests and become lush and healthy. Our soil amendments are a vital portion of a well-crafted turf program. Business owners will increase their results and experience less stress with more profits. Homeowners will grow beautiful lawns with no harmful chemicals.
