Vulcasoil

VOLCANIC SUBSTRATE FOR GRASS LAWNS

Composition
Volcanic substrate consisting of a mixture of volcanic minerals (pumices and lapilli, of which 25% is volcanic lapillus sand and 75% is pumice sand), organic matter (blond peat with an average particle size) and/or organic matter with humus (composted vegetable material) and mixture of slow release fertilizer pellets.

Vulcasoil is a convenience product, of easy application, free of dangerous toxic substances and infecting seeds replacing with excellent results siliceous sand during the treatments and charging of grass carpets (top dressing) and contributes to create grass carpets and sports fields, intensely stressed (up to 500 hours/year).

Vulcasoil is a volcanic substrate ideal for the preparation of seed bed and grass carpets in clods, for the preparation of fertile, draining and rooting layers.
