Answer: 
I used it directly in my raised garden beds. My veggies grew like crazy..the biggest tomatoes and squash I have ever seen and the Moringa Trees love it too. Flowers were lush and this in hot Arizona! After the growing season is over and the soil is perhaps depleted, I will add new compost for the next go around.

Answer: 
Wonder soil is complete as is. No need to mix with a thing else. I used it in my Earthboxes without added nutrients and all the vegetable plants grew to a huge size. I would not say that this Wonder soil block is a top soil, although you could use it as such. I use it as as a complete soil medium in my Earthboxes.

Answer: 
I use it as an easy way to get a large amount of potting soil. It comes as a very dense and solid block that you have to re-hydrate. When you re-hydrate it, it expands into a couple cubic feet of potting soil (so be sure to re-hydrate it in a big tub). After it is re-hydrated, you can use it just like any other potting soil.

Answer: 
When watered, each 11 lb. brick expands to 2.5 cu feet. You'd need 3 of these to fill your Garden Tower 2, but you may want to add other amendments depending on what you are planting.

Answer: 
WonderSoil is already inoculated with Mycorrhizae that helps plants absorb nutrients, so you could use this coir mix as a substitute for compost if you wish. It also includes worm castings, so bonus! If you have some compost available you can always go ahead and throw some of that in as well depending on your soil ph and what you are planning to grow.

Answer: 
I would think so. Once it is re-hydrated, the consistency is very similar to compost and should help to loosen your soil. They have added a couple things to it so that it is NOT just coir fiber. You'll see the water-retaining gel pellets, although they are very small. It also has added nutrients which should also help your new plants get a good start.

As a different possible idea for you, I recall reading in the paper about someone who didn't even bother digging their new rhododendrons into their garden because their soil was so hard. They just planted them in hills of potting soil. Read Less

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It really sucks up water and expands This was recommended for a specific type of garden project I wanted to create. Coir fiber soaks up water and holds it, unlike peat moss. The coir brick was heavy for its size but expanded to create at least 4 more times the quantity of mass. March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by light weight and easy to use It was light weight and was easy to use. We cut it up in 4ths with a saw and then soaked it in a 5 gallon bucket. It did not expand as much as we thought it would, but it was much lighter initially than top soil and it cost more. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonder product Loved the easy to carry squares. Just put in place and turn on sprinkler. A must buy. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonder Soil Expand and Plant Great product used to start my seedlings and etc. No issues yet seems everything is doing well. I would recommend. Wish they sold it in the stores. However had no issues with shipping to my home came fast and ready to use. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the Soil--But Not In Cube Form I've purchased this product before in sheets and those were a lot easier to use. It comes bug-free, fungus-free and doesn't clump. I haven't used it long enough to tell whether my plant results will be better. Next time I'll definitely buy the Expand and Plant Sheets again. May 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This is a very simple and clean way to fill your raised bed garden. I was able to plant my garden in no time and with very little help. My soil was delivered to my door and it is compact enough that I able to lift the little bales of soil to the garden myself. You actually add water and fluff. My seedlings also seem to love this Wonder Soil, they have been in the soil for only one week and it is clear that they are established already! October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this dirt so much easier to carry a 11 lb cube of dirt versus large bulky bag. great for carrots and root crops April 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Choce I used a Rubbermaid tote on my deck to hydrate the soil. So far have used it for starting wintersown seeds and indoor seedlings. Plan to use it in my raised vegetable bed and for container plantings if the weather ever cooperates. I wish it were available in store, however. April 5, 2016
