Lightweight soil is a blend of screened sandy loam (40%), coir (20%), PAS100 Green Compost (20%) and LECA 4-10mm (20%).
The loam complies with BS 3882 (2007) and is screened to 10mm.
The high proportion of LECA, light expanded clay aggregate, reduces density and enhances drainage characteristics.
The material is free flowing, safe, easy to handle and is available in loose bulk loads, bulk bags or 25kg bags (32 litre)
This specialist topsoil is suitable for use where bulk density and free drainage characteristics are critical, such as in roof gardens or in planters on roofs where point loading is limited.
Lightweight Soil is not recommended for ericaceous (lime hating) plants
