The most difficult aspect of growing trees and plants in the Southwest is the hard, compact soil and the high alkalinity found in our soil and water. This alkaline condition prevents major and minor nutrients from converting into compounds that are readily available to living plant roots. Hard soil also drains very slowly which can result in wet, soggy soil that harbors damaging fungus and cause overwatering symptoms in your trees and plants.
Soil and Water Conditioner™ is an inexpensive way to make your normal watering and fertilizer go further. As little as 6 yearly applications will help your plants perform optimally all while saving you time and money on our natural resources like water. Moon Valley Soil and Water Conditioner™ contains sulfur and gypsum to counteract salt buildups and loosen tough hard soil. The sulfur reduces the high Ph and allowing the excess salt buildup to be flushed out of the root system, thereby creating a soil base that converts nutrition easily. Gypsum works its way into hard, compact clay loosening the soil leading to better drainage. Several applications per year will make a noticeable difference by loosening hard soil and visibly stronger and healthier trees and plants.
Permanently changing the hardest soils may require several applications for a couple of years, but the lasting effects on your landscape are always worth the effort!
Easy to use!
Just spread Moon Valley Soil and Water Conditioner™ on top of hard ground, water it in, and let nature do the work, washing out excess salts, softening clay soil, and helping your fertilizers work at their full potential.
When planting in caliche or hard clay soil, it is recommended to sprinkle one cup of Soil and Water Conditioner™ underneath the rootball of an average shrub and two to four cups underneath trees.
