This mix is specially formulated for under turf applications. It is a finely screened medium that is ideal to prepare the ground with prior to laying new turf.
It acts as an organic alternative to traditional sand-only products and is suitable for both residential and commercial applications.
An Under Turf mix should be designed with compaction rates in mind, that’s why the Earthborn Under Turf mix is thoroughly screened to ensure only size-appropriate particles are used. This allows for optimum root formation and ensures the mix is free of larger organic particles that may eventually break down and leave behind air pockets.
The base soil for our under turf mix has an appropriate amount of naturally occurring sand and fine organics, which aids in both the retention and drainage of water. Freshly laid turf in particular needs access to essential nutrients to thrive, and the sustained release of these nutrients is also important.
Earthborn’s Under Turf includes a turf specific, water soluble, granular compound fertiliser that supplies the nutrients needed for healthy, green grass. This fertiliser provides an environment with perfect levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and boron.
