Successful Grassing on Dead Soils in the Southeast
In recent years, Biotic Soil Media (BSM) and prescriptive soil amendments have been utilized at project sites throughout the Southeast to help stakeholders achieve successful permanent grassing. These products have been used on many sites including airfields, mine reclamation projects, power generation and pipeline sites, DOT’s and many more. This presentation will review current challenges facing engineers and contractors who struggle to develop successful erosion control plans and grow permanent vegetation. Growing permanent vegetation begins with understanding soils and soil health. Using a soil test, a scientific approach can be adopted that will assess the current soil conditions and provide a prescriptive formula for improving soil health. Following simple guidelines allowed these sites to achieve sustainable vegetation quickly and cost effectively.
