photo shows a side-by-side comparison of the results
obtained when using soil products from two different
soil companies. This image demonstrates the stark difference
that soil will make - struggling, chlorotic and dieing,
versus lush, green and flourishing. This installation
occurred at the Texas Instruments Headquarters in Dallas.
These plants were installed at the same time, by the
same crew, and were being watered from the same irrigation
system. The only difference was
the soil. The plants in the foreground were installed
in materials supplied by another major soil provider
serving the same markets in the Metroplex. In revealing
contrast, the thriving and luscious looking plants towards
the rear of the photo was planted in SBS soil products.
Many of the problems listed on the Common
Problems page are “common” because of
the other suppliers in the area.
