Decorative Ground Cover
and Horticulture Uses

Since it is non-toxic, odorless, completely inorganic and 100% inert, Buildex is environmentally friendly. It is an attractive permanent ground cover that helps to protect shrubbery by insulating it from temperature extremes. When used in soil mixtures, Buildex will not compress, degrade, decompose, or react with agricultural or horticultural chemicals. It acts as an insulator in the soil mixture and protects plants from rapid temperature extremes. Buildex retains a high percentage of its weight in absorbed water and waterborne nutrients, making it an excellent buffer. Buildex is user friendly because it is lightweight, inert, pH adjustable, easy to handle, economical, and readily available.
