Soil Conditioning

You can improve your existing soil with some Dynamic Lifter and Sir Launcher. Dynamic Lifter is an organic soil improver that will put some goodies into your existing soil without changing its structure. It is applied at a rate or 30kg per 100sqm. Sir Launcher is a new and innovative product incorporating a starter fertiliser with the added benefit of quality moisture magnet water cystals. The water crystals swell dramatically when wet, trapping hundreds of times their own weight in water and soluble compounds such as fertiliser. This ensures the baby roots of your Sir Walter have access to water between watering times. It is different to a wetting agent in that wetting agents are designed to make your soil less hydrophobic, not hold onto existing water.

Any Sir Launcher that is not used on your turf is great to use when you pot up your plants or new garden beds as it means that water is stored where the plant needs it, significantly reducing the need for hand watering between allocated watering days.

 If you are going to bring in outside soil it is important that the landscape mixes are not applied as a layer on top of the existing soil but incorporated into the top 200mm of the soil profile. If this is not done you will find that the turf will have a root system that will stay in the top layer. This will cause your turf to have very poor drought tolerance and a reduced ability to take up the nutrients that you apply. Layered mixes are a major cause of dry areas in summer’s first heat wave, not the beetles.

It is a good idea to apply a wetting agent to the soil and water it in, as all of the work you have done moving the soil around will have worked a lot of the fines in the soil to the surface and dried out the soil making it hydrophobic or anti wetting, causing the water to pool and run through the sub surface, by passing the roots.
