Axis Diatomite rock (DE) is a porous mineral called diatomaceous earth. This kiln-fired soil amendment is produced from pure diatomite deposits found in the Nevada mountains. It does not contain additives and is composed of trillions of microscopic unicellular plant skeletons called diatoms with a honeycombed, continuous pore structure.
Axis DE is normally introduced into the soil to a depth of 3-12 inches. The primary function of AxisDE is to correct or modify soil conditions which inhibit vigorous root growth. It will improve water retention and release. It will make oxygen more available to the root zone, improve drainage/permeability, reduce compaction, and buffer soil temperatures to provide a beneficial environment for vigorous roots and soil microbes.
Axis DE benefits for landscaping:
- Improves root growth and microbial activity
- Resists compaction
- Balances air and water in soil
- Increases infiltration of nutrients
- Buffers soil temperature
- Increases plant available water
- Improves drainage
- Stable under temperature extremes
- Removes undesirable salts
- Improves Water Holding Capacity
