What Does It Do?
Field No.21 has a low bulk density making it less prone to compaction and is perfect for planting larger trees and shrubs in raised beds and containers. The improved soil structure benefits root penetration and access to soil moisture and nutrients; it allows for better emergence of seedlings due to reduced crusting of the surface; and greater water infiltration, retention and availability due to improved porosity.
Field No.21 is carefully blended and graded to less than 8mm ensuring that it is always a clean and consistent product.
