Amending Soil.

Excavation and development is detrimental to local soils. The topsoil is often stripped and either left in stockpiles or dumped.

 

Heavy equipment moves in and compacts the ground surface. What may already be poor subsoil suffers increased bulk density, water runoff, erosion and breakdown of structure.

 

SOILCO has a proven track record for soil amelioration projects working in conjunction with leading landscapers, civil contractors and landcare agencies. SOILCO’S soil improvement packages are comprehensive and include:

 

  • Soil testing and interpretation of results
  • Adaptable methodologies
  • Compliance with relevant quality, environmental and safety standards
  • Soil screening to remove contamination including rocks and debris
  • Incorporation of GO Compost – AS4454 certified soil conditioners graded to specifications
  • Supply and blend ameliorants including lime, gypsum and fertilisers to meet soil chemistry requirements
  • Treatment of subgrade
  • Spreading and cultivating

 

The application of soil amendments and fertiliser provides desirable species with the nutrition required for healthy growth and vigour. Insitu soil can also be enhanced to create a fine moist bed, allowing maximum germination of specified seed mixes and reducing mortality rates in tube stock.
