Questions and Answers
Rachio’s new lawn care plan focuses on naturally building roots and maximizing soil nutrition to create a strong foundation for the lush, sustainable lawn of your dreams. It’s designed to replace traditional fertilizers (which are often synthetic and harmful) with child- and pet-safe nutrition for your lawn. When you subscribe, you’ll receive a customized lawn treatment that’s safe, complete, and easy to apply, delivered to right your door.
Rachio Thrive uses Lawn Champion — a treatment of microalgae and other nutrients — to bring healthy balance back to your soil. As grass gets access to more nutrition and healthy microbes increase in the soil, grass roots can grow thicker and more resilient, making the most of the nutrition and water available. Once applied, this treatment brings stronger roots and greener grass to your lawn.
With Rachio Thrive, you’ll receive the perfect amount of Lawn Champion for your yard size and climate, a reusable spray applicator, our easy-to-use expandable hose, and instructions. Even better, it all comes in a perfectly-sized storage box.
Typical fertilizers are not safe for human exposure at application. They often contain far more synthetic chemicals than soil and plants can absorb. This excess seeps down into groundwater and pollutes shared water resources — even destroying the natural ecosystems found in streams, rivers, and oceans. Rachio’s lawn treatments contain the exact right amount of all-natural nutrients for your lawn’s specific needs, so there’s no waste and no pollution.
