Fytofoam® - twice the green half the water..
Fytofoam®, a unique soil improver with remarkable water holding properties used in sport pitches and golf courses, turf and amenity, landscaping, gardening and turf- and sod nurseries.
Fytofoam® - finer and faster rooting.
Fytofoam®’s great water-holding ability and air permeability ensure a gradual release of the nutrients and the water absorbed. These factors have an extremely positive effect on germination and also encourage faster and finer rooting. As well as creating a splendid and even growth, this improves the self-restoring capability of the turf. In other words, golfcourses with Fytofoam will have finer and better results and reduced water and electricity costs.
Fytofoam® can be applied golf courses either by incorporating it into root zones during construction thereby achieving the ideal growing environment for quality turf grasses, or during resurfacing or routine maintenance.
Introduced into the root zone of grassed areas, the open cell structure readily absorbs water and nutrients, retaining them so that the grass can access them when required. It also retains at least 37% air – vital for good grass growth.
Layer-application of Fytofoam®.
The construction method comprises the application of a 3-5 cm layer of foam from a portable foam-mixing machine. Once the material has set the foam can be easily worked into the upper root-zone top layer with the use of a rotavator.
- Fytofoam® always retains air space within it’s foam structure, preventing water logging and rotting of plant roots. This air space also reduces soil compaction in the root zone.
- Fytofoam® is a perfect solution to hard-to-wet soils. When water comes into contact with Fytofoam®, it is absorbed instantly and then slowly releases to the soil, reducing run-off loss.
- As Fytofoam® greatly improves the water-holding ability of the soil, you’ll use up to 50% less water, depending on conditions and plant species, and growth will be healthier.
- Nutrients are absorbed into the open cell structure of Fytofoam® and are gradually released, rather than washing away, so up to 25% less fertiliser is needed.

Golf course constructions with Fytofoam®
Fytofoam® is used very often to improve the water/air – ratio on golfcourses. The benefits are huge, not only in quality improvement of the
courses, but there will be achieved a substantial water-saving in the maintenance cycles. This can go easily from 25 to 50%.
Fytofoam® can be applied on soccer pitches and golf courses either by incorporating it into root zones during construction thereby achieving the ideal growing environment for quality turf grasses, or during resurfacing or routine maintenance
Field and layer application:
The construction method comprises the application of a 2,5 – 3 cm layer of foam from a portable mixing machine. Or by spreading the Fytofoam® flakes over the field, and incorporated directly.
Once the material has set the foam can be easily worked into the upper root-zone top layer with the use of a rototiller
