Application

Its alkaline pH makes it suitable for general landscaping purposes provided species with a wide pH tolerance or those known to prefer alkaline subsoils are selected. The soil is well supplied with organic matter and all major plant nutrients. The carbon-to-nitrogen ratio (C:N ratio) of the soil is acceptable for general purpose landscaping.

Description
