Abstract: As the supply of urban lawn grass‘ irrigation is expensive and laborious it is important to fi nd other methods which are eff ective against the water defi ciency. Th e aim of the study was therefore the assessment of hydrogels‘ infl uence on the the most common grass species (Festuca rubra, Festuca ovina, Lollium perenne) which were cultivated under controlled drought stress. Results indicated that this watersorbent increased the germination, growth and dry matter content of tested species. It was therefore concluded that using hydrogels on grasslands seems to be reasonable in accordance to the water defi ciency problems.

Keywords: watersorbent, drought, Festuca rubra, Festuca ovina, Lollium perenne
