Landscaping with Trees and Shrubs:

  • Dig your planting hole as in normal practice. Landscaping experts recommend the hole should be 50% wider and deeper than the size of the plant ball or container.

  • Mix Water Crystals into a portion of the removed soil as uniformly as possible, either as dry crystals or, preferably as pre-swelled, expanded gel.

  • Treat the soil removed from the planting hole with Water Crystals at a rate of 1.5 tsp. dry polymer per gallon of soil, or 2 cups of expanded gel per gallon of soil.

    Reduce these rates by half for heavy soil; increase them by 50% for very porous or sandy soil.

  • Place a portion of the treated soil into the bottom of the hole, set the plant in place, and fill the remaining treated soil in around the sides of the plant.

    The top 1-2 inches of the planting hole must be filled with untreated soil.

  • Thoroughly water to fully hydrate the Water Crystals.
