Urban Development

In an urban development project, you want the soil in the area to be safe and reliable for the general public. Several urban development projects that we’ve performed have been in public parks where there is a large amount of human activity, sometimes requiring a complete overhaul of the soil that was previously in that location. Regardless of the urban development project that you’re taking on, we can provide you with topsoil delineation solutions that maximize the effectiveness of your land!

Eldorado Community Park Project

We previously completed a job in Superior, Colorado that required us to establish a sod lawn area where park-goers could hang out and relax. The area of land our client wanted to be sodded was previously used as a dump area for basement stratum from a nearby subdivision. This land had vast amounts of clay and didn’t drain properly, so the goal was to provide a solution that allowed the soil to drain while simultaneously providing sod that would offer sustainable growth. Existing urban soils were collected and sampled to come up with the best soil design for this particular park.

Solutions for Topsoil Urban Development

Where other companies will tear up the land and order brand new topsoil resources from outside sources, we look to use the materials that are already provided to us. Our ability to salvage preexisting soil and turn it into something usable allows our clients to save money while simultaneously giving them the comfort of knowing they’re being environmentally responsible. This is just another way for us to show appreciation to our clientele. If there’s a way we can limit the amount of money you have to spend, we’re going to do everything we can to see it through.

Properly Dealing with Urban Soils

Unlike soil found in vast forest regions or rural areas, urban soils are almost always directly influenced by some sort of human activity, often times in a negative manner. This is why monitoring topsoil in urban development is so important. Getting a good sense of the soil health, the slope of the landscape, and the nutrients within the soil can help project managers come up with the best solutions for their next urban development project. At Duraroot, we are happy to extend our soil sciences and sampling services to any client that wants to carry out urban development in an ethical, cost-effective way.
