HFplus specializes in landscape design with an emphasis on water conservation. We will design your outdoor space so that it works with your home’s architecture and surrounding biomes, and we will put in design elements that are beautiful, functional, and best of all, water efficient.  

Available nowhere else, our unique systems and technology allow you to have the landscape of your dreams - lush with flowers, trees, and shrubbery, while reducing your water consumption by anywhere from 25 to 50%!

How is this possible? We employ a soil amendment called HydroFlakes that absorbs water and acts as a reservoir in your plant’s root zone.  This means faster water penetration, less runoff, sturdier plants, sod, and roots, 25-50% water savings, and 25% fertilizer savings - and it lasts for 15 years!

AVAFlakes™ - How does it work?

AVAFlakes™ is an aminoplast which, when added in flake form to potting soils and composts, produces an ideal growing environment for roots. The result is stronger, more vigorous plants which can potentially be brought to market earlier.

Improving the air/water balance results in a stronger, larger root system. The accompanying increase in the number of roots allows for greater uptake of water and nutrients, resulting in healthier plants.

Peat Replacement

As environmental lobby increases regarding the use of peat, AVAFlakes™ offers a solution: It can replace up to 20% of peat in regular compost mixes. This is a cost-effective replacement option, in addition to improving the growing environment for ornamentals.


AVAFlakes™ is an aminoplast and contains only organic elements - thus, it is completely biodegradable.

AVAFlakes™ mixed with your potting compost will provide a variety of benefits:

Oxygen availability

Lack of oxygen in the root zone has a direct influence on root development and, subsequently, the uptake of nutrients and water. Because of its open cell structure, AVAFlakes™ helps ensure that there is always good oxygen content throughout the pot - even if the substrate become saturated. The result is more feeder roots, improved water and nutrient uptake, and stronger plants.

Water Management

The addition of AVAFlakes™ to compost improves its ability to hold water while also increasing drainage, reducing both the amount of water needed and the time spent watering. Thus, AVAFlakes™ enriches the growing environment and effectively cuts costs. Also, these water-holding properties ensure that plants can be safely transferred from the nursery  to wholesale and retail outlets: even if the growing media drys out, AVA Soil™ greatly improves the re-wetting capabilities of the compost.

Nutrient Retention

AVAFlakes™ ability to retain water reduces loss of nutrients by leaching, resulting in a lower volume of required nutrients as well as reduced costs.
