Re: bermudagrass wars


Lava sand is busted up volcanic material - particles bigger than actual
sand (like big pinheads)and very rough to the touch. Great for putting
on top of your mulch to discourage slugs and snails, it tears them up.
Greatest conditioner in the world for clay soil. Dark red in color.

Texas greensand is actual sand from marine deposits and chock full of
lovely micronutrients. Great source of available iron too to combat
chlorosis.

Its texture is like coarse builder's sand.  Dark green in color.  Roses and most shrubs adore it.
I've also discovered that a fine layer of it sprinkled over the soil
when seed starting seems to prevent the dreaded damping off disease.
It's wonderful stuff - always keep an extra 50 # sack around just
because it is so useful! Lovely stuff.
