We recommend using around 30% aeration. If going for long term no-till we suggest using half Rice Hulls and Half Pumice or Lava Rock.

Versatile, lowest price

These work very well for soil aeration. They can be used on their own, but mixed with one or two other aeration amendments I feel they allow for the best possible texture. The price is right too, I used to get rice hulls from a local brew shop but even after shipping I'm saving almost 70% if I'm buying the largest size. Get em!

First time using and love it

This has been a please to work with compared to perlite, but ya knew that. It really adds nice structure to the soil. In combination with pumice and perlite, its even better. I got to say, I looked everywhere, and buildasoil.com really had the best price
