A-1 Greenroof/Hydroponic Mix
A-1 Greenroof/Hydroponic Mix is a blend of Pumice, Coir, Peat Moss, Washed Sand and A-1 Lifelike 3/8” Compost. This soil is relatively lightweight due to its high organic content and extremely low clay content. Although it has a superior percolation rate, its water and nutrient holding ability greatly reduces leaching of valuable plant nutrients and minerals. (Made on order only.)
- Rooftop or parking structure containers and planters
- Greenhouse growing medium
A-1 Greenroof/Hydroponic Mix may be applied directly as a backfill for planters. It may also be applied to existing native soil by rotor-tilling a 2” layer to 2” to 4” of existing soil. It is important to rotor-till with existing soil to create a transition zone. A final layer of 4” to 6” may then be applied to the rotor-tilled surface. Periodically apply mineral nitrogen at 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet.
