I had a large tree removed from the front garden and as the soil is very clayey, the nurseries suggested to use compost. I did this with limited success and was sure the soil needed something more. I rang DPI and they suggested I ring a garden supply firm. I contacted Steve Jones Home Hardware & Garden Supplies and he suggested to use Garden Mate. I bought the product and gave the garden its first dose of Garden Mate and turned the lumpy, clayey soil over. A fortnight later, I turned the soil and found that indeed, it was a lot softer (less lumps). With spring not far away I repeated the application of Garden Mate. Two weeks later when I turned the soil again there were no lumps at all and it was quite loamy. My wife planted the garden and all the plants have flourished. The soil is still as loamy as you could wish for. Garden Mate has certainly lived up to its name. Good luck and may Garden Mate make other frustrated gardeners with problem soil, happy.

The area where I applied Earthlife products has shown a remarkable difference. This area has set a new flush during cold, dry weather conditions. The rest of the orchard has not even moved.

Jul-1999 Earthlife’s soil enhancement system has greatly improved the structure of my heavy, hard, black soil blocks resulting in them being easier to work and being far more friable when wet. The other notable fact is the improved infiltration rate when irrigating. Jul-2000 Earthlife products have changed my worst producing cotton block into the highest yielding block this year. Feb-2002 I’m amazed, 13 t/ha of sorghum (5.26 t/ac) during one of the hottest summers.

Earthlife Minerals was applied to one row, chicken and feedlot manure applied to other rows. There is no difference between the manure treatment and Earthlife Minerals treatment. The Earthlife Minerals treatment costs less than the manure.

I have a big tree in the back yard that shades a large area. It has always been an eyesore till now as the grass had never grown under this tree. What a difference Garden Mate has made from dirt to lawn in one season. Even the Camilla’s are loving it.
