IMPORTANT: Please make sure the soil is fully hydrated as you fill beds/containers. The Arizona weather evaporates moisture quickly. CLICK HERE to watch a short clip of properly hydrated soil.
For an easier way to hydrate soil, try adding Raw Yucca by NPK to your water. It is certified organic, and acts as an soil surfactant (agricultural “soap”) to break the soil tension and allow easier hydration, thorough drainage, and improved flushing of solutes.
