Aerolite's scoria aggregates and our speciality hydroponic mix have been used extensively both for side wall and roof top gardens.
Scoria natural water retention properties combined with its low weight make it an ideal material for this use. It will never breakdown and so will provide a stable long term environment for plant growth.
The highly vesicular nature of our material, its long term chemical and physical stability due to its glass like nature and its unique surface chemistry all work together to make it an ideal growing medium.
Aerolite's washed sand and our washed range of aggregates provide the cleanest scoria products available in Australia so reducing fines issues with water recycling pumps etc when compared to alternative products.
Different users have used a range of different aggregates sizes depending on the size of the growing unit from our 1-3mm sand, 3-5 grit, right up to 40mm aggregate.
These products can be supplied in bulk amounts or in one cubic meter bulkabags which are ideal for cranage to roof tops etc.
