Lava rock is a red, porous rock. It is roughly half as heavy as limestone aggregate.
It has many uses in landscape beds and biofilters, especially since its porous design allows it to quickly absorb and retain both moisture and heat. This is ideal in helping plants, root systems, and soils retain moisture in beds that have a lot of direct sunlight and heat. It is also used as bio-media in garden pond biofilters.
