The larger ones are used under transplanted shrubs and the finer grinds in hydroseeding. I use it some of the time and it does seem to work well and help with the water problem.
You ever use readyplay? Much like the copolymer gel , but this
Product is more like sand...they use it on several ball fields...ewing carries it
