Simply mix STRIPS into the soil. The following guidelines can be used:
For planters and containers--5-gallon bag of STRIPS is sufficient for use with up to 100 gallons of soil (ratio 1:20). Mix in more STRIPS for small pots, and a little less on a percentage basis for larger pots.
A 5-gallon bag of STRIPS will support 1 large tree or 2 smaller trees.
For use under turf on a lawn or sports field -- the 5-gallon bag will cover 200 - 400 ft², assuming you will have about 4 inches of soil.
