In the pursuit of a sustainable and flourishing garden, Soil Plus is excited to introduce our unique and eco-friendly Milled Macadamia Nut Shells. This innovative ground cover, akin to mulch, has quickly become a gardener’s best friend, bringing a plethora of benefits to both home gardens and professional landscapes.

Longevity that Outshines Wood Chips

One of the standout features of our Milled Macadamia Nut Shells is its impressive longevity. When compared to traditional wood chips, macadamia nut shells last significantly longer. This means less frequent replenishment, saving both time and resources, making it an efficient choice for busy garden enthusiasts and landscape managers.

1. Excellent Moisture Retention

Milled Macadamia Nut Shells excel in retaining soil moisture. Their unique composition helps in reducing the evaporation rate, allowing plants to stay hydrated for extended periods. This is especially beneficial in the diverse climates of Hawaii, ensuring that your plants receive adequate moisture, even in the drier regions like the Kona coast.

2. Improved Soil Health

Not only do they preserve moisture, but Milled Macadamia Nut Shells also contribute to enhancing soil health. They act as a barrier, protecting the soil from the harsh sunlight and temperature fluctuations, which can be particularly intense in Hawaii. This protection helps in maintaining soil temperature and prevents the topsoil from drying out, promoting an environment where plants can thrive.

3. Aesthetic Appeal

Aside from the practical benefits, Milled Macadamia Nut Shells bring a unique and aesthetic appeal to any landscape. Their rich, natural color adds a touch of elegance and contrast to the greenery, making your garden or landscape stand out. This visual appeal is a bonus for homeowners looking to enhance their curb appeal and landscape managers aiming to create picturesque settings.

4. Sustainability at its Core

In addition to these advantages, choosing Milled Macadamia Nut Shells is a step towards eco-friendly gardening. This product is derived from the abundant macadamia nut industry in Hawaii, utilizing a by-product that would otherwise go to waste. By incorporating this sustainable ground cover into your garden, you are contributing to a cycle of environmental consciousness and resourcefulness.
