Soil Environment Services

We assess soils on sites ranging from nature reserves to contaminated building sites

Soil resources survey for reclamation use

A soil resources survey of existing material on site is undertaken to determine the suitability for soil production. There is also a review of other material that could be efficiently brought onto the site.

 

On-site pot trials of different soil blends

 

There may be a number of materials identified that have potential mineral and organic qualities, which could help in the manufacture of soil.  This includes for example, colliery shale, crushed bricks, site clay, green waste compost and paper crumb (waste material from paper manufacturing).

 

Through a series of field experimental trials, a number of soil designs can examined  to support habitat development. Further larger scale trials can refine the soil design and manufacturing process and soil production may may then begin on-site.

 

Please contact us if you require this type of investigation.
