Vulcapark

Composition

VOLCANIC SUBSTRATE FOR GRASS PARKING LOTS

Fertile volcanic substrate consisting of a mixture of volcanic minerals (pumices and lapilli, of which approx. 20% is volcanic lapillus sand and 65% is pumice sand), organic matter (blond peat with a medium particle size) and/or organic matter with humus (composted vegetable material) and mixture of slow release fertilizer pellets.

Vulcapark, is a convenience product, of easy application, free of dangerous toxic substances and infecting seeds; it is an ideal substrate allowing a convenient and functional construction of meadows used for car parking areas.

Vulcapark, fertile substrate for roots, seed coverage and obstruction of plastic and cement cells, is perfect for treaded on meadows provided with draining, water retention and fertility for both, highly stressed (with protective elements) and for those at low intensity, i.e. at low traffic (without protective elements).
