Perlite is very light weight. Even in containers, it migrates to the top of the pot or large container and the blows away when a gust of wind comes along. Perlite can be used to create pore space but so can’t bark fines which tend to stay in place.

I wouldn't add it to my 'garden'soil, since I think it would require too much. A sand amendment may be better, or a soil aeration if it is for your yard. I would use perlite for potted plants.
I think you have got it right. I would do the same. In fact, I have with a pot-bound, light deprived aloe vera. The change is amazing.
I would not add this to my lawn; it wld req. too much. I would aerate the soil and or use a sand and garden soil amendment. A consult with a lawn professional maybe helpful to determine what they would do.
yes. if you need lots of dranage.. filling bottom 1/3 with pure perlite and the rest 2/3 with 50-50 mix of perlite and potting soil.
What is the question?
The miracle grow perlite does not contain fertilizer
It needs to be used based on the other items you are mixing in and the plant you are planning to use your potting mix for.
