What Makes Garden Mate Your Go-To Choice?

Garden Mate is not your average garden conditioner; it's a powerhouse of over 60 essential mineral elements, including rare earths, plant-friendly silica, natural rock phosphate, and a diverse ecosystem of over 30 beneficial microbe and fungi species. This potent blend is your key to lush, flourishing plants.

Improve Your Foundation 

For New Turf: Before laying the turf, distribute Garden Mate evenly at a rate of 300-500 grams per square metre. Then, sprinkle Lawn Blend over the turf at a rate of 100 grams per square metre and irrigate thoroughly.

For Clay Soils: Bid farewell to the days f strenuous digging. Garden Mate acts as a swift clay breaker, eliminating the need for backbreaking labour. Simply apply and water, and in just 2-3 weeks, you'll witness remarkable improvements. If needed, re-application is a breeze. Experience softer, more manageable soil, enhanced drainage, and superior moisture penetration.

For Sandy Soils: Garden Mate's versatility shines as it binds sand particles and organic matter within sandy soils. The result? Reduced nutrient leaching and enhanced moisture retention, ensuring your plants thrive.

For Planting: Elevate your soil's mineral content, enhancing structure, moisture retention, and nutrient cycling. This promotes robust root systems and thicker stem growth. Your plants will thrive in any condition, wet or dry, hot or cold, and you'll notice a surge in earthworm activity, further enriching your soil.
