The perfect base for a new roll-out lawn. Looks like sand, but has added screened topsoil. Efficient delivery in the Dublin area.

'Rootzone' sand and soil mix is used as a thin underlay when laying lawns. If you are putting down roll-out grass sods, a thin layer of this sand and soil mix enables quick establishment, improved drainage and strong root development. Made from 70% sand and 30% screened soil, it looks like pure sand, but has some of the nutritional elements of soil. This blend is used when establishing sports pitches or any grass surface where durability is required. Apply thinly, at a rate of approx 1 ton per 35-40 square metres. Spread over cultivated soil to fill imperfections and provide a firm base.

Grass laid over rootzone should be fed with a nitrogen-based fertiliser after approx 30 days while the roots establish. Soil-based mixes should not be handled or walked on when wet. If you want to top-dress an existing lawn you should use our 100% washed 'top-dressing' sand.
