The Best In Houston Soil Work
Starting with the topsoil, many times your build site could be stuck with loose, silt-like dirt that just isn’t right for a long term building investment. Truth be told, you actually want a three tier soil development.
- Start with a strong think soil bottom layer that won’t shift much over time.
- Next, your gonna want a medium grade sand level that can easily absorb heavy water and helps with the vegetation you want.
- Last, you can go with a clean screened topsoil or more commonly used, a clean bank soil.
When you have a build site developed to put a residential or commercial site pad on, the banking is a major factor in the protection of your investment. Generally, it is advised to implement about a 12 inch banking grade on the outside of the pad. This will ensure that the soil has a proper amount of depth to sink and still maintain correct water flow away from the building. If you have a standard 12 inch slab installed for your home or building, that means an even greater 24 inch protection wall from water damages. That’s an incredible protection for your property!
