Biochar helps reduce our impact on global warming.
Biochar returns carbon back to the soil that would’ve been released as CO2 into the atmosphere. This process is called carbon sequestration. Great for the soil health.
How To Use Wakefield Premium Biochar
Start by mixing it into your existing soil or with compost. Ultimately, you want biochar to be 10% by volume of the top 4″-6 of the soil. With most soils, you will use biochar to enhance your garden or lawn. Biochar is primarily used to provide a structure for microbes and good bacteria to thrive. The char contains a lot of micropores to hold water and nitrogen. This new ecosystem of increased microbial activity is wonderful for plant growth. Learn more about How To Use Biochar. Just a reminder, biochar is not intended to be used solely as a soil substitute.
How much Wakefield Premium Biochar should you use?
A 1-gallon bag is great to broadcast over ~55 sq/ft. If you are able to mix it into the soil it would mix into the top 4 inches of soil for 8 sq/ft. The biochar should be mixed well so that it is evenly spread throughout the planting area. The best practice is to give the mix a day or two to allow the biochar to absorb as many nutrients as possible. Water a few times, too. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to let the biochar charge up with other materials. We recommend making sure you add water and recognize that biochar will absorb some water and nutrients initially. Just make sure any new seeds or seedlings have enough water in the first day or two.
Will you need more than a 1-gallon bag? You should consider our 1-cubic foot box of Wakefield Premium Biochar.
If you are only able to spread the biochar over the top of the soil it is recommended that you reapply for a few years to get the full recommended volume into your soil.
One gallon is best for 2-4 sq/ft of gardening mixed into the top 4″-6″ deep. A good guideline is to make the biochar equal ~5-10% of the total soil content in the area of application. Consider using a bag in any of these projects:
- Flower pots
- Flower beds and bushes around the house
- Patching the lawn that needs reseeding
- Apply to the root area of a tree that you want to plant in the yard
- Add to an existing compost pile to speed up the composting process and reduce odors. Biochar is an amazing filter!
- FYI… Not that this has anything to do with plants but you can also use about 2 cups of biochar in your cat litter and it will take away almost all of the odor.
And, here’s the legal stuff…
