Hello
if you live in Montreal you can buy something called LavaGrip From Home Hardware
https://www.homehardware.ca/search?query=lavagrip
LavaGrip is used to deice sidewalks.
It is completely organic and is made of volcanic rock just like Eco-Complete and it is inert.
LavaGrip is sourced from British Columbia, Canada.
The product is mined and produced by CanLava Mining Corp., a Canadian mining company headquartered in Coquitlam, British Columbia. The volcano last erupted some 7,000 years ago. This was after the last ice age and the deposit is the only post-glacial lava rock in Canada.
$22.00 for 35LBS
this product was on dragons' den

I do leave in Montreal, so should I add this on top of Eco-complete, or before Eco-complete

You can use it instead of Eco-complete.
That's what I Did.

Putting one substrate on top of another is called capping. It is usually done to hold a light weight or unattractive, nutrient rich substrate in place. Like putting sand over Miracle Gro soil. All the substrates that have been referred to on this thread are inert gravel or sand. If you want to combine them you can. No real benefit to any order that you place them in other than if you're going with a deeper substrate it can be beneficial to have coarser gravel and rocks as a base. Sand is typically easier to plant in then gravel. If you layer them, sooner or later they will combine anyway.
