NPK RAW Yucca Surfactant is an OMRI-Listed Organic product used as a wetting agent to improve water-holding capacity and moisture penetration. A surfactant also helps to flush excess solutes from the root zone.

Made with saponins extracted for the Yucca plant, it acts as a mildly soapy substance, making it easier to hydrate dry or hydrophobic soil. Simple to use, add 1/16 teaspoon (a pinch) to a 5 gallon bucket and water normally. Can be used on soil as well as for foliar solution applications. Find more information on NPK RAW Yucca and other products here.

Blocks expand to ~2.25-2.5 cu-feet of coconut coir/husk
4.5 kg (~10lbs.)  Approximately 440 lbs per cu-yard

Coconut coir (pronounced ‘koy-er’) is a sustainable alternative to peat moss, and has several advantages over peat moss. It holds water without compressing and absorbs water evenly, providing excellent root zone aeration, and saves on water. Coconut husk products also have a more neutral-to-acidic pH (5.5-6.2), and can remain effective for up to 4-5 years. Coconut husk is an excellent way to increase the aeration and water-absorbing power of potting soil and clay or heavy soils, without peat moss.

Our OMRI-listed coco husk products are widely used for hydroponics, organic soil mixes, landscaping and container planting. Coco coir and coco chips can be mixed in different ratios (and amended with pumice, vermiculite, fertilizers, etc.) to provide the perfect planting medium for your plants.

Coconut husk products are also ideal for landscaping projects. The coir can be used as top soil or can be mixed with sand (60% coco coir, 30% sand, 10% compost) to use as a direct medium on open land, to grow grass, flowers, bushes, etc. Due to the water holding capacity of the coco husk, you can reduce irrigation drastically and grow healthier landscapes.

Place 1-2 coco blocks in a large watertight bin or tub, or a wheelbarrow. Add water to allow the blocks to sit in the water. Generally ~4 gallons per block. Plan on each block expanding to 2.25-2.5 cubic feet each. Wait ~15 minutes for water to absorb, then you can break up the blocks and fluff the coco. It is ready to be added into the soil. We recommend 15-20% coco : garden soil, especially in the top 8-12”

Tank’s Green Stuff’s Decorative Wood Chips are made from trimmings of mesquite, palo verde, pine, eucalyptus and other trees. These wood chips are 100% natural, made without color additives or chemical dyes. This beautiful recycled material has a rich blend of browns, light tans, and subtle reds throughout. The wood chips are ideal for mulching around trees to conserve water and keep the root-zone cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Wood chips make a great topdressing for a perennial bed or planter. They should also be used for rain water harvesting basins or berms, to control soil erosion and reduce evaporation. Wood chip mulch fosters beneficial soil microorganisms, and provides the soil with organic matter as the wood decomposes over time.

The wood chips are available in two sizes: Large and Small. The Large wood chips are 3″ minus, while the small wood chips are 1/2″ minus. When applied to rainwater harvesting areas, the Large 3″ size is perfect for areas that experience moving water. The Small 1/2″ and minus size is great for basins and inside berms to retain moisture and reduce evaporation. Small 1/2″ size is also available in 2-cubic-foot bags for sale.

Approximately 600 lbs. per cu-yard.
