What is LandLife?
LandLife is a revolutionary solution
for the problems caused by clay soil.
LandLife uses modern technology to
oxygenate high-density clay soil,
balance ph levels and microbial
activity. This results in a much more
granulated soil. In addition,
LandLife is very easy to use; just
mix this coffee colored liquid with
water in a ratio of 1:500, then apply
to the soil. LandLife is a 100%
solver for clay soil.
2. What are the benefits of
The granulation causes significant
changes to soil properties, resulting in
1. Roots can grow deeper and wider which
allow them to thrive in abundance with
- Accessibility of water, fertilizer and
nutrients from the soil is greatly
- Savings of up to 50% in water and
2. Better water penetration
- Elimination of excessive water run-off
- Inhibition of moss and fungus
- Elimination of accumulated salts
3. How does this formula
work on clay soil?
Scientific explanation and evidence
LandLife’s concentrated formula ionizes
This ionized water neutralizes the charge
in clay particles so they no longer attract
The neutralization of the charge in the soil
releases excessive water and trapped
This process creates an oxygen-rich
environment which balances ph levels
while maintaining healthy microbial
This converts the soil from clay to a
The improved granulated soil allows
plants to grow more robustly and

Statement of the Problems
Product Review: LandLife
Successful gardening and maintenance of a
healthy garden is difficult to achieve in clay soil
due to its heavy consistency especially when the
soil gets dry. Clay soil also causes poor drainage
and is noted for high acidity. Because of these
problems, clay soil inhibits the healthy growth of
1. The heavy consistency of clay soil inhibits
the growth of roots which fail to achieve a
healthy depth and width. Plants will be
hindered in their ability to intake available
nutrients and incapable of reaching their full
2 . Bad drainage accelerates the growth of
unwanted moss and fungus in the yard
Positive effects of the product named LandLife are listed
by the manufacture company with the following points:
1. Provides formation of granulated soil.
2. Removes accumulated salts from soil
3. Normalizes ph level in the soil
4. Suppresses harmful bacteria
5. Enhances activation of fertilizers
6. Reduces use of water
(Earth Science Products Corporation. 2008).
Because of the above effects, the following explanation is
provided by the manufacturer:
1. LandLife changes the form of clay platelets into
a more granulated form so that roots can grow
abundantly. Plants are then able to absorb
necessary nutrients better
2. The granulation also helps water drain better
and inhibits the growth of moss and fungus
Given the product information by the manufacturer, LandLife should change
the form of clay particles to a more granulated form. Therefore, plants can grow
more abundantly, due to the growth of roots. This granulation also contributes
to good drainage, which minimizes the growth of unwanted moss and fungus.
This experiment addresses the following questions:
1. What differences are observed in the growth of
strawberries when one start of strawberries is planted in
untreated soil and the other in soil treated with LandLife ?
2, If any, what differences are observed on the beds?
3. Does this experiment support the information given by LandLife?
The hypothesis for Q 1 is that the strawberry start planted in
the soil treated with LandLife will show more positive
growth due to the improvement of the soil compared to the
plant growing in clay soil.
The hypothesis for Q 2 is that the beds of the treated soil will
show less growth of unwanted moss and fungus, if any.
if the hypotheses for Q 1 and 2 are confirmed, the hypothesis for Q 3 will also be
1. Conduct a shake test to investigate the presence of clay in the soil
2. Loosen the soil with a hoe then treat with LandLife that has been
mixed with water in a ratio of 1:500
3. Put the untreated soil and the treated soil into separate cavities of
a planter. Plant one strawberry start in each cavity
4. Control the amount of plant food and water
5. Leave them in a natural setting a while, and observe the
differences between two plants when they mature and grow
1. Untreated clay soil from Portland, Oregon and the clay soil
treated with LandLife and water in a 1:500 ratio
2. Two cylinder- shaped transparent plastic containers
3. Two starts of strawberries
4. A handmade planter (13 by 18)
5. All purpose Plant Food (1 tsp. per 1 gallon)

Part 4: Conclusion
This study attempts to answer three questions. The first explores the positive
effects on the strawberries planted in the soil treated with LandLife. It was hypothesized,
based on the information given to Landlife by the manufacture company, that the
strawberry planted in the treated soil will grow better. In accordance with this
hypothesis, results showed that the positive effects on the strawberry planted in the
treated soil by LandLife were confirmed. The berries, leaves and roots of the strawberry
plant grown in the treated soil were significantly more abundant than those grown in the
In relation to the granulation of the soil and good drainage and its positive effect
on the beds, the second question investigates the effect of LandLife on the beds. It was
hypothesized that the treated beds inhibit the growth of moss and fungus. Results
confirm the hypothesis. It was observed that the beds not only inhibited the growth of
moss but also that of grasses. No fungus was present in the test samples.
In accordance with the above results, the third hypothesis is also confirmed. This
study agrees with the product information of LandLife:
1. LandLife changes clay soil to a more granulated from of soil, which plants can grow
more abundantly, and
2. Such soil inhibits the growth of unwanted plants, such as moss and grasses.
