Conditioning your soil is different than fertilizing your soil, and both play important roles in providing a fertile environment for optimum plant growth.
Fertilizing your soil is all about providing the food source for the microbes to proliferate and deliver nutrition to your plants. Your soil condition is all about the soil environment in which the microbes live and your plant grows.
A healthy living soil will have a balance in its texture so that it provides adequate moisture while draining well, provides adequate air while holding moisture, has a strong community of beneficial microbes, has density in particles to provide a strong mineral base, organic matter to hold nutrients and a pH that is friendly to plant growth and microbial activity.
When we add soil conditioners to our soil, our intention is to assist in creating that balance so we produce vibrant, nutritionally dense, disease resistant plants.
Mother Nature’s natural sponge. Keeps soil open when applied after aeration; allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the root level. Creates water-holding pockets in the soil that help hold water in drought conditions. When applied alone or with sand helps firm up wet areas in turf. Does not decompose and each application builds on the previous one.
Finely ground dolomitic limestone (calcium magnesium carbonate) granulated with water-soluble binder. Increases soil pH and magnesium in weeks. Helps increase nutrient availability in the soil.
