80/20 Sandy Loam is a blend of 80% double washed sand, and 20% natural washed soil. It is suitable for using as an underlay for new turf or to top dress established lawns.
80/ 20 is suitable for all types of turf. It is a fast draining soil that promotes deep root growth, and can be used safely at higher depths than other soils without the need for excessive compaction. Turf such as Buffalo thrive when laid upon deep layers of 80/20, as their root system is capable of reaching greater depths than most turf varieties.
Due to its superior drainage properties 80/20 is ideal for areas built upon a clay base, but it is not recommended to use 80/20 in areas which have a naturally sandy base.
When using underneath turf we recommend applying 80/20 Sandy Loam at a thickness of 50-150mm. When using 80/20 at the maximum depth it is still recommended to roll or lightly compact the soil to prevent uneven surfaces arising.
80:20 Sandy Loam is available in 30kg bags and by the tonne.
