New Lawn Structuring
In new lawn construction, especially in soils with high clay content, Turface can be tilled in before seeding to combat compaction. With more room for air in the soil, the plants can breathe. The tiny passageways that Turface provides greatly improve water drainage.
Great for Drainage
Landscapers use it extensively to backfill aeration holes, further reducing compaction and increasing drainage. Turface is also popular in gardens and anywhere else the soil needs to be amended for increased drainage and less compaction.
Turface works very well in nursery plantings when mixed with soil 25-50% as it retains moisture for a very long time.
