Soil Conditioner

Soil conditioners, also referred to as soil amendments, help improve soil structure by increasing aeration, water holding capacity, and nutrients. With repeated applications, they also help break up compacted clay soils.

Clay soil is prevalent in many regions of the UK. It has small particles that hold water well but can become waterlogged and compacted, making it difficult for plant roots to penetrate.

This treatment is ideal for customers with clay soils, and also new builds where poor soil conditions can contribute to poor grass growth.

The benefits of soil conditioners include:

  • Improved soil structure: Helps soil flocculation i.e. to break up compacted soil, increase soil porosity, and promote better root penetration and aeration.

  • Enhanced water retention: Increases soil water retention by improving soil structure and reducing water runoff and evaporation – particularly useful for heavy, drought prone soils.

  • Increased nutrient availability: Provides essential nutrients for plant growth and enhance soil microbial activity, which helps release nutrients from organic matter and minerals in the soil.

  • Better plant growth and health: By improving soil structure, fertility, and moisture retention, soil conditioners create a more favourable environment for plant roots to grow and thrive.

Overall, including a soil conditioner in your programme of lawn treatments can help achieve a healthier, more vibrant lawn by improving soil structure, nutrient availability, water retention, and microbial activity.  

Where soil conditions are poor, it's an important step in maintaining the long-term health and beauty of the lawn and maximising its potential for growth and vitality.
