Questions on Combining Soils...

New Scape setting up. I have a new bag of Eco Complete that I want to combine with
ADA Amazonia and Power Sand S ... What would be the best way to go about this ?
Add as seperates or combine ( except for the Power Sand S ) or ??

If you want an even look (i.e. the Power sand interspersed within the Eco Complete and Amazonia), then just mix it beforehand.

Be aware that with time, the smaller grained substrate will sift to the bottom.
