“We are a beach community with extremely sandy soils and have always had issues keeping enough nutrients to help the plants and vegetation stay lush. These are very harsh environments for growing without extensive irrigation. We tried Mirimichi Green products in areas where no irrigation exists and grasses must be moved on a regular basis. It was always questionable if those areas would survive the summer months. After using the carbon-based products along the roadways, the results were incredible and instantly noticeable. The treated areas looked good, if not better than some of the areas that are regularly maintained and had irrigation. In addition, we treated old oak trees that were on the verge of dying. We soon saw massive new growth (even on limbs we would normally prune) and bright green leaves. We are now using several products in new plantings around the island.”
As a business owner, I’m always looking into ways I can better serve my customers. My Mirimichi Green rep and I went over the various products and I was excited to try the CarbonizPN Soil Enhancer product. The 4 yards compost per 1,000 sqft is the way of the dinosaur. We are currently using 8 40lb. bags of CarbonizPN for every 1,000 sqft. I can pick it up in a car and deliver it vs an F-250 and a 14′ trailer. We can spread it in about 5-10 min and away we go. Not only am I saving time (drive time, load time, spread time, and multiple trips time) we are saving money because time is money. What’s most important is the not the time saved but the added value of the product for my customers. The Mirimichi Green product does wonders for the soil, something that compost alone can’t. The microbiology is great and the grass we have been installing is amazing. We have also started using it in all of our plantings. We have added the Nutri-Kelp and the Tree & Shrub liquid fertilizers to plantings as well.
“When we’re building a course or designing a course, our priority is the safety of the horse. The footing is the most important part. We do everything we can to make the footing perfect. For the footing, we use Mirimichi Green [products], aeration, and a little fertilizer if we have to. We do our very best to make the footing firm and soft at the same time. We want it solid, but want it to have a little give [too]. We did the entire course with Mirimichi Green [products] about 4-5 years ago and you could tell the difference. And then we brought in Mirimichi Green’s team to treat the whole course. And you could still tell in May, after the Kentucky Three Day Event, where it had been treated. It was greener than the rest [of the course]. We don’t want hard footing and we don’t want really soft muddy footing. Even when it’s really wet here, the footing has held up really well. I try to protect the course as much as possible from the rain by aerating and using Mirimichi Green [products] because it allows the roots to go deeper and prevent compaction.”
“The only place that’s even close to that is Aachen [Germany],” said Phillips. “[In Tryon], you really have the best footing anywhere in the world. I’ve never before done a course where I’ve been 100 days out from an event and not had a completed track, but having said that, I’ve never before seen tracks go in so quickly and produce such unbelievably good footing.”
The products we use have increased plant health of turfgrass. We are very impressed with the response we have got from Mirimichi products throughout the growing season.
“At our golf course in Central Illinois there are 80-year old, “push up” greens constructed of native soil. Some of them have high clay content and are surrounded by trees that compete with our bentgrass for nutrients and water. Some greens, in particular, have compacted, high-clay soils. One of the greens, we alleviated the compaction problem with core aerification
One of our greens with the clay and tree issues showed “straw brown” turf color in the spring. I thought we had lost grass as other greens were already greened up and growing healthy by this time. We mixed CarbonizPN in the sand topdressing and applied it post-core aerification at a rate of 30% CarbonizPN / 70% topdress sand. This particular green showed improved health in two weeks that lasted the season. I attributed it to the Mirimichi Green CarbonizPN application.
We plan to use Mirimichi Green to address the compaction problem on additional greens in the future and using it for divot fill in.”
All Mirimichi Green products have been implemented in our program since May 2014 here at Broken Sound Club. The CarbonizPN-DJ we used for DryJect in May 2017 has shown instant results! The greens are holding their moisture and nutrients much longer. I back their product and give them all of my support!
“I started using Mirimichi CarbonizPN Soil Enhancer a couple years ago with my landscape installs. I was a little skeptical at first because I was unfamiliar with the product. I used it on a large install in the middle of August in KY. The results were astonishing! I did not lose a single plant and my labor for watering was tremendously less. I am now using this product on all of my landscape and sod installations and getting amazing results!”
“We first used the CarbonizPN Soil Enhancer and Nutri-Release last year on Kenan Stadium when we re-sodded the entire field. Being a sand-based field, we felt it held nutrients much better, and the overall quality of the field has been better than years past. Since then, we have used the soil enhancer under sod on 3 other fields and will continue to do so on future sod installs. We currently spray Nutri-Release at least once a month during our growing season when we are applying foliar fertilizers. So far we’ve had great results with Mirimichi Green products and plan to continue using them as a regular part of our installs and fertility program.”
“We are very happy with the results. No disease pressure and nematodes are a thing of the past. All I can say is WOW!”
I tested CarbonizPN Soil Enhancer and immediately saw results. There has been a dramatic reduction in labor and maintenance. I’ve been using Mirimichi Green products with almost every plant installation!
