Adjusting nutrient levels in your soil can be done many different ways

lifetime.

SOIL
AMENDMENTS
TYPES




Good soil is developed to address specific planting needs. Soils can be
premixed and ready to use or specially formulated for certain plants.
You can also find individual amendments to add to your native, in-ground
soil to improve the composition.



Peat moss

Peat moss increases the soil's ability to retain moisture and nutrients
while also improving drainage. It can absorb 10 to 20 times its weight
in water.



Soil compost

Soil compost and all manure types enrich soil and boost fertility. It
helps soil to release nutrients to a plant continuously over long
periods of time.



Soil conditioner

Soil conditioner is added to soils to help prevent compaction. It is
often used to help native soil that has been damaged or to promote
strong root growth. It improves drainage and aeration when added to
potting soils.



Perlite

Perlite is derived from volcanic rock that's been crushed and heat-treated
into white, lightweight particles. When added to soil, it helps increase
air space and improves water drainage.



Lime

Lime increases the pH of a potting mix to around 6.0 and is ideal for plant
growth in containers.



Sulfur

Sulfur helps lower soil pH by reducing excess alkalinity. It provides plants
with iron for lush, green growth and enhanced water filtration.
