Laboratory Testing of Topsoil

Laboratory Testing of Topsoil

Whenever topsoil is produced or sold it is important to assess the quality of the soil. The British Standard BS 3882 contains methodologies and related limits which are used to assess the said quality. From the set limits it can be identified if the soil meets, or fails these identified criteria. Within these criteria there are different types of material (for example multipurpose, low fertility, acidic). The analysis undertaken will determine which categories the soil would fall into.

Nicholls Colton is able to complete the above suite and also provide guidance on sampling and appropriate sample sizes for the testing.
