For Best Results
Mix biochar into the soil and water enough to keep the soil moist for 5-7 days before planting. Your new grass, plants, and trees will enjoy healthier soil all season long. For specific applications, see below.
Trees & Shrubs
For new plantings, consider the area the roots will grow and add enough biochar to make it about 10% of the soil mix in that root zone. For the next 5-7 days, water enough to keep the soil moist.
Lawns (New Seed & Sod)
For new lawns, seeding and sod, mix biochar into the top 2-4 inches of soil. (About 1 cubic foot bag for every 100 square feet.) Gently rake grass seeds into the soil-biochar mix. For the next 5-7 days, water enough to keep the soil moist.
For lawn repairs or patches:
Aerate the ground first. Spread biochar over the aerated area and rake thoroughly to mix biochar into the soil. Use 1 cubic foot bag for 375 square feet. For the next 5-7 days, water enough to keep the soil moist, then water as appropriate for your area.
