Anyone Use DynaDirt Aquatic Planting Soil?

I was doing some research on the general web when a site suggested a "standard aquatic planting soil". I searched for such and came up with a product called DynaDirt. According to the label, it is "a natural, heavy mix of Florida reed sedge peat and sand" used for "a variety of bogs & lilies". It gives some instruction on capping with sand or gravel based on fish size and warnings about koi liking to uproot plants. I'm assuming this means that it is fish safe. It's fairly inexpensive as well, though more expensive than regular top soil. I read it has time released fertilizers.

Is anyone using this product?

It's fine if your putting together a outdoor pond (which it's made for) but I wouldn't use it in a indoor freshwater tank.
