Characterisation of Site Soils

Green Earth Management can identify the physical soil properties, soil structure, soil content, colour, soil horizons and drainage features. Soils are characterised on the distribution of clay, silt and sand/gravel. Knowledge of the site soil is vital in understanding the earthworks and foundations which are required for the proposed structure or development on site; this is to avoid any instability or drainage issues. Characterisation can be undertaken by surface and sub-surface exploration and laboratory testing.
