The all-natural solution for improving the soil structure of golf courses, landscaping, sports turfs and rooftop gardens.
AxisDE® diatomaceous earth products and Axis Ceramic® clay products are premium soil amendments designed to reduce water usage, improve drainage, reduce soil compaction and improve soil structure.
Golf Courses and Lawns
AxisDE or Axis Ceramic: All-natural solutions for managed, green golf courses. Improve the performance of your greens and fairways and enjoy immediate benefits for turf establishment by incorporating 5% - 10% of Axis (by volume) into the root zone. Permanent performance means water savings, improved infiltration rates, control of excess water, reduced compaction and tolerance of recycled and salty water. Axis conforms to USGA particle size specifications and has negligible breakdown over repeated freeze and thaw cycles.
The same benefits Axis brings to professional golf courses can also help the lawn at your business or home. Axis allows air and water to penetrate compacted clay soil and enable deep roots to grow. In sandy soils, Axis adds much-needed water holding capacity and makes that water available back to the plants as needed.
In both cases, you can water more deeply and less often and also make the most of any natural rainfall. As a result, customers have documented water savings of 30% and more by using Axis on their lawns.
Landscaping and Gardens
Both AxisDE and Axis Ceramic products reduce compaction and increase water and air permeability of the soil. These products increase plant available water, firm up soggy soils, loosen hard-to-work soils, provide better drainage and aid in nutrient transfer. Independent research has shown that 93% of the water absorbed by Axis products are available to the plants, more than TWENTY TIMES higher than other soil amendment products. In areas with inadequate natural rainfall and limited water available for irrigation, Axis products provide a way to achieve a consistent green turf with less irrigation.
With heavy play and practice schedules, soccer and football fields easily become compacted, resulting in worn or bare turf areas. By adding porosity to the soil with Axis products, even the hardest native soils can be amended to allow turf to recover more quickly and respond faster to regular maintenance. Additionally, improved soil allows fertilizers and pesticides to be more effective, sometimes at lower rates, to produce a better playing surface.
Rooftop gardening is an attractive and energy-saving alternative to a conventional rooftop. Rooftop gardens can keep buildings cooler, save energy, extend the useful life of the roof, and add beauty and usable space. Elaborate rooftop gardens are where the garden actually becomes the roof. Specially designed layers separate the garden from the “hard" roof, provide drainage, supply nutrients, and even add contours. This type of rooftop garden is referred to in the industry as a “green roof system."
Organic Soil Amendment for Cannabis
Axis is the perfect soil amendment for growing cannabis. Cannabis growers have embraced the tremendous water holding properties of AxisDE in creating their organic soil blends for fast growing, premium yield crops. Axis' unique structure helps supply nutrients, reduce compaction and provides a better root growth environment for the plants.
