Hydro Perlite’s naturally absorbent structure improves the free available water (due to an increase in total pore space) of the soil by a minimum of 255%. Hydro Perlite is an inorganic, entirely natural, pH neutral, and reliable soil additive that enctheirages more robust & deeper root development and offers resistance to drought stress or irrigation system failure.

In addition, their Horticultural Perlite (2-6 mm grain size with a density of 80 kg/m³) is a fully inorganic, lightweight soil conditioner which permanently reduces soil mix density for elevated planters on-slab to circa 770 kg/m³ (standard sweet soil mix has a bulk density of ca. 1,700 kg/m³) , thus offering a substantial 60% reduction in density & load.
They work closely with clients and major international consultants and have delivered numerous high-profile projects along the years. Their technical submittals are backed by officially-monitored and certified lab tests and year-long field mock-ups, reflecting their successful track-record for over twelve years in delivering 50% water-savings.
