It is packaged in breathable hessian bags which are reusable and eventually compostable.
Oxygen is key to the health of our product and its efficacy and we are passionate about not introducing anything disposable such as plastic packaging into an already overburdened and polluted planet.
Soil Builder protects and covers the soil from harmful sunlight, it keeps the soil cool and retains moisture.
Soil builder when applied as a living mulch does not blow away in the wind like so many other mulching materials.
It has been tried and tested in our extremely windy hometown of Cape Town!
Soil Builder steadily builds vibrant, microbially diverse living soil.
It has the appearance of a forest floor and smells wonderful when freshly applied.
Spread the contents of one bag over one square meter of prepared earth. Crumble the inoculant ball and sprinkle over the surface. Water to settle and activate. Do not compact. Re-apply seasonally.
Mix at a ratio of 1 part Soil Builder to 3 parts existing soil, backfill and plant as normal.
Use Soil Builder to kick start your compost and wormery project.
''A number of things impress me about Soil Builder and have me believing wholeheartedly in this product.
All the plant growth I have observed growing within this microbial mulch is bouncing with compact, deep green, healthy growth in a variety of vastly different landscapes, from dune sand to Table Mountain clay, from irrigated to non-irrigated landscapes, from domestic to industrial applications. The soil underneath the mulch layer is cool and sweet smelling, teaming with active soil life. Soil builder is able to defeat the destructive effects of slope, heat and wind in harsh conditions- staying put, covering and nourishing the soil and all that's in it.''
''Soil Builder is quite simply a magical product. It transforms the poorest quality soils into a wondrous life-giving base. I have seldom seen plants thrive and flourish quite so happily before.''
“I’ve been using soil builder on my client’s gardens as well as my own personal garden for some time now. While my primary motivation for using the product is for its ability to conserve moisture within the soil, there is no question that it is a remarkable soil conditioner that brings soil to life in a way that conventional composting just can’t.”
Degradation of our soils and the loss of topsoil globally is the single greatest threat to the survival of functional living systems.
Healthy topsoil absorbs and retains moisture thus reducing irrigation requirements drastically and saves water, our precious resource.
It also provides a medium to sequestrate vast quantities of carbon dioxide as healthy plant growth rapidly absorbs and stores this atmospheric abundance and returns it to the soil.
All of this results in a premium topsoil that requires far less organic fertiliser inputs, and it improves plant resilience, health, and quality of produce.
Frustrated by the quality and longevity of conventional composts and mulches available to the gardening, landscape, and agricultural scene we embarked on a long journey of discovery and innovation.
We looked to the forest floor for inspiration and all the elements were there!
Fresh green nutrients, carbon in abundance and of course a host of microbial fauna and fungi steadily supporting the decomposition process and releasing the nutrients required for a thriving soil to support an abundant ecosystem.
