A biochar-based, fixed-carbon amendment for quality, beautiful, and resilient turf

Cool Terra is the world’s only fixed carbon root zone amendment
produced with Cool Planet’s patented Engineered Biocarbon™ technology, a biochar-based material specifically designed to ensure predictability, consistency, and performance.

Cool Terra provides microbial habitat, optimal nutrient and water holding capacity, as well as structural improvements for your soil.



Support plants in compacted soils


Modern commercial and residential landscapes and gardens are expected to have a “full” or “complete” look from the beginning, and maintain their quality and beauty overtime, but this is often difficult to achieve partially due compacted or poor-quality soil.

The solution: Cool Terra can improve landscape and garden plant establishment through quicker germination and increased root development into the surrounding soil.


Optimize water and nutrient efficiency


Cool Terra plays an important role to plants by retaining moisture and, in many applications, reducing evaporation. More water in the root zone – where plants need it – and reduced evaporation typically leads to greener, healthier, aesthetically pleasing turf and landscape environments with less water. And, by optimizing water retention in the soil root zone, plant roots can access nutrients held in the water and through the material’s AEC/CEC capacity


Support sustainability


Cool Terra is OMRI certified organic and USDA approved 100% biobased and the fixed-carbon nature of the material allows for carbon sequestration benefits of operation sites. On top of that, Cool Terra can enable operators to use water and fertilizer more judiciously!

Engineered for easy application with landscaping equipment

By incorporating Cool Terra into the root zone, key soil performance characteristics can be enhanced. Cool Terra works to unlock the potential of the soil for improved plant available water, nutrient retention, biological environment and microbial growth, structure, and sustainability.

Regardless of your unique situation, you can easily use Cool Terra. Cool Terra is specifically engineered for easy, low-economical, rate usage and is compatible with all types of application equipment. Utilize Cool Terra on golf course tees, greens, fairways, renovations, roughs, driving ranges, approach zones, divot mixes, and on sports fields, goalie boxes, and more.
