Prior to beginning the project, the lots we worked with had a lot of landfill items that were hard to remove with standard equipment. The first step was the clear those lots out and determine what type of soil we would have work with on the lot. After clearing the lots, we learned that the lots were full of mostly clay soil. Learning that, we next cleared the lot of the clay dirt and filled it with soil and plant food. Once that was completed, our lot was ready to have the Urban Edge Lot Design installed.  More about this project >
