Do you need to improve poor soils or soils low in organics on a slope? Verdyol Biotic Earth™ Black is a hydraulic growth medium (HGM) that builds up soils and enhances vegetation growth. It is composed of processed straw, flax fibers, Sphagnum peat moss, Mycorrhizae, Triacontanol growth stimulant, and a variety of soil conditioners and micronutrients.

How Verdyol Biotic Earth™ Black Works

If you’re working on a project where importing topsoil is not a viable option but you’re dealing with poor soils, Biotic Earth™ Black is the way to go. Its mechanically and thermally processed components prevent erosion, while its more organic components recondition poor soils and degrade harmful minerals, like sodium and hydrocarbons. The Mycorrhizal fungus in Verdyol improves the overall soil health while the micro and macro pores regulate air and water flow through the soil.

In a construction project, the organic material and micro and macro pores are depleted. Verdyol’s HGM replaces the lost organics, air, and water. And when the topsoil is destroyed from the project, the Biotic Earth™ Black can be applied to the topsoil in order to kickstart is restoration and expedite the vegetative process.

Other instances when Verdyol is an effective solution include:

  • Shoreline restoration

  • Turf blanket reinforcement

  • Turf reinforcement mat filling

Overall, it improves moisture holding capacity, water infiltration, soil structure, soil microbial activity, seed germination, plant photosynthesis and cell growth, and vegetative growth rates. It is also resistant to rainfall and runoff.
