Heatwave continues – Pumice Aggregates to the rescue

September 12th, 2013

Due to ever rising temperatures and lack of rain Pumice is becoming the preferred choice for the horticultural sector. Being a natural product pumice contains no harmful substances, it is inert with a pH of 7.0 – 8.0. Pumice is resistant to frost and chemicals and does not break down in water. It improves the soil structure and retains valuable water. Due to its light weight  and versatility Pumice can also be used in landscaping where it has been used instead of  pebbles in the public domain in interior and exterior landscaping and where the weight of natural pebbles would not be acceptable.
