Boughton’s Urban tree soil is comprised of a moist friable, slightly calcareous, sand with a single grain structure, it falls into a sand texture classification. Our Urban Tree Soil is a medium sand with suitable levels of porosity that can be maintained, and the risk of compaction is minimised.
It has good water holding characteristics and exceeds the minimum requirements for the Californian Bearing Ratio. Urban Tree Soil should be installed at depths no greater than 600mm; the greater depths should be built up with our subsoil products.
Urban Tree Soil is ideal for tree planting in hard landscape environments. Boughton Loam can provide additional advice if needed on how best to specify and install this soil.
