Public parks / Planting / Maintenance

 

Today, Geohumus is used by many maintenance departments, city nurseries, city parks departments, cemetery gardeners, etc. and included in public bid proposals. Less watering, better growth rates and the reduced fertilizer use are good arguments for an increasing number of professional users for public areas.

Professional and Commercial Users

Public green areas

Public green comprises various areas: From grounds to public buildings to recreation areas and parks to green traffic centers. The use of Geohumus offers numerous advantages for the new system as well as for the care and restoration of existing green surfaces. First and foremost, however, Geohumus reduces your watering and maintenance and thus the care costs.

Geohumus - in soil and substrate

Geohumus is mixed directly into the ground or substrate and stores up to 40 times its own weight in water. The use of Geohumus is especially recommended for light, sandy soil with a low water-retaining capacity.

Save water - lower the amount of work

Geohumus expands like a sponge, absorbing the water which is normally lost through surface draining, leaching and evaporation. Plants can absorb this stored water through their roots as needed.  Watering does not have to take place as frequently - every third watering can be dispensed with. Water logging is prevented through the porous surface of Geohumus and the soil aeration is improved.

Avoidance of water logging

Through the porous structure of Geohumus, water logging is prevented.

Better and faster root penetration

Geohumus stimulates the growth of plant roots. In Geohumus, plant roots find a favorable environment that is rich in water, oxygen and nutrients. This environment provides for the optimal development of roots.
Better utilization of nutrients Along with the absorbed water, the nutrients released in it are also stored in the root area and can be used more efficiently as a result. The drainage of nutrients is also significantly reduced.

Soil structure and soil life

The expansion and shrinking during the absorption and release of water loosens the soil. Through the improvement of the soil structure, soil life and microbial activity are stimulated and the resupply of plant nutrients is promoted.

Healthier plants, increased and stronger flowering, longer flowering time

The combination of improved water supply, improved nutrient utilization, stimulation of the soil life and better root penetration ensure the strengthening of plants. Depending on the plant type, more biomass emerges, more flowering occurs and the flowering time lasts longer.

Thicker, greener, tougher grass

Geohumus ensures the continuous and homogeneous water supply of grass and provides for consistent growth. Through the improvement of the soil structure, soil life is stimulated and the resupply of plant nutrients is promoted. This provides for a higher germination number, faster growth and a generally thicker and tougher grass.

Loosening of the soil even under increased loads

Even under high loads and pressures from above, such as the case is with planting close to streets, the soil is loosened and aerated through expanding and shrinking.

Frost protection for brief, unexpected cold spells

Geohumus enhances the heat storage capacity of the soil and thereby protects the roots from freezing. Frost damage from temporary fluctuations in temperature near the freezing point is reduced with Geohumus.

Environmental compatibility

This is the result of numerous toxicological and ecotoxological reports. The characteristics of Geohumus last for 3-5 years, depending on the soil type.
Soil animals provide for the physical reduction of the Geohumus aggregate, whereas fungi and bacteria provide for the biological decomposition of the material.
