Educational Session Details

Engineered Soils

LAUREL VALLEY SOILS —Jake Chalfin- SPACE LIMITED TO FIRST 40


Engineered soils not only provide the growing medium for aesthetically pleasing landscapes but also play critical roles in stormwater management, reduction of irrigation requirements, mitigating heat island effects and in certain cases provide thermodynamic insulation properties.  The implementation of engineered soils is a rapidly evolving practice, and as such, the current state of specifications in the field are divergent and constantly advancing.  This course will provide perspective on what constitutes a quality engineered soil, how it is made, how it works, as well as recommendations for writing the most effective specifications.

Learning objectives:

 

·Understanding the proper site application and incorporation rates of compost and engineered soil products for general landscaping and stormwater features

·Understanding the evolution of engineered soils and their different applications

·How to identify, analyze and purchase quality sources of soil and compost

·Understanding and creating effective specifications for compost and engineered soils

·The scientific and practical benefits created with engineered soils

·Trends in soil, compost and green building best management practices
