Organic Soil Amendment For City Soil Projects

Revitalize Your soil. Grow with Cool Terra.

Applications and Use: For innovative municipality, parks and recreation, and city departments interested in optimizing key soil performance characteristics for quality, resiliency, and beautiful plantings while improving sustainability.

A consistent and predictable soil amendment for small scale use on a few open space acres to extensive applications across thousands of sports fields.


Cool Terra® helps growers and users manage fundamental soil properties and has been shown to improve plant establishment through quicker germination and increased root development. By incorporating Cool Terra into tree plantings and transplants, turf and sports field renovations, green roofs, bioswales and land reclamation projects, landscapes and public gardens, street medians, and more, growers can improve key soil performance characteristics for greener, longer-lasting jobs and greater sustainability.

Often, soil is overlooked– seen as merely ground for holding plants while fertilizers, nutrients, and water help them grow. Over time, our topsoil’s have deteriorated and compacted due greater demands and harsh environments and many installations fail because of poor soil quality. Fortunately, Cool Terra works to revitalize soil performance characteristics to provide a solid foundation for plant growth.

A biochar-based, fixed-carbon amendment for quality, beauty, and resiliency

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.
