The revised Australian Standard “Soils for Landscaping and Garden Use” was released in December 2018. There are substantial differences between the 2003 and 2018 versions, including a significant increase in the number of soil types and classifications.
SOILCOs technical expertise ensures our products meet end user requirements and project needs. In recent months further testing and development of products has occurred to ensure the performance standards for chemical and physical properties are met.
SOILCO has updated its technical information to confirm compliance with the new product classifications.
