Seasonal Display Bed Amendment Trial

Plant Spring 2020

To better understand the performance of our Landscaper's Pro products vs. other common soil amendments and various amendment methods we are conducting a Seasonal Display Bed Amendment Trial. Planted in the Spring of 2020, we will monitor the overall performance in a functional landscape. 

The trial is planted in front our Sales Office in Maple Park, IL. 

Research progress is being updated at hortsoils.blogspot.com.
