Soil tests on Monday 9th November

November 5, 2009

Rineys, the Council’s contractors who will be carrying out the works on Arnold Circus, will be taking some soil samples in the gardens on Monday 9th November. They will be digging two small holes to a maximum depth of 70cm in two places – one on the top tier near the perimeter railings and one in one of the lower planting beds – to confirm the soil satisfies the Council’s health and safety requirements. The holes will be covered up immediately afterwards.

    Hi everyone,

    We have asked for an additional trial hole to be done to provide an extra indication of what we will need to add to the topsoil to improve its horticultural quality (i.e. nutrients, organic matter and the like). This means they will be digging 3 (three) holes in total.
