I don't know how effective as I don't have another untreated area to compare it too. I did notice that water did not pool as it did previously
I found the SoundSoil website for the lawn repair for my dogs (which works great BTW). I decided to get RestoreClay and Liquid Humate to try a restore an area of dead soil. The soil that won’t absorb water, nothing will grow, etc. Takes a lot of work to rejuvenate soil/bring it back to life. Luckily for me, I tried RestoreClay and Liquid Humate before I went to all that trouble. The dead soil is hosting a lovely flower bed…and it didn’t take months and months to work. I applied it a few times this season and I can’t believe how nice my flower bed has become. Plants are doing great! ALSO - these products have been a real help in beds that are compacted, not from clay, but from bark dust which created a shell over the soil that would not allow water to seep through. Not clay but like clay…products worked very well. These products…all of them…are now my go-to for yard care. So happy I found this site.
So far these products are performing very well in my garden and landscaping.
Amend Your Clay Soil With RestoreClay
There is no shortage of products out there claiming to be effective in softening or loosening compacted clay soil. Living in the southeast, there is nothing but hard compacted clay soil. I have tried many products hoping to succeed in softening my soil so the Bermuda grass could established deeper roots. Nothing worked until I bought and applied RestoreClay. The owner of this company was very helpful in helping use this properly. With his direction I did two applications a month apart along with their Liquid Humate solution together. I was initially impressed that the owner would write to me on three separate occasions. Then I was further impressed that my soil responded beautifully after the second application. Be sure you know your lawn’s dimensions so you are applying the correct amounts of both products. Last year I wrote a review for this product saying that I did not see any results. The reason there were no results was because I did not apply anywhere near the right amount of product. RestoreClay and Liquid Humate are now part of my lawn’s maintenance program.
