'Rootzone' blend is used as an underlay for hard-wearing, healthy lawns. If you are putting down a new lawn using 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. Used on sports pitches or any grass surface where durability is required. Apply thinly, at a rate of approx 1 ton per 30-35 square metres. Spread over cultivated, and level soil to fill imperfections and provide a firm base layer. Grass laid on rootzone will need to 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 'top-dressing' sand.
