Soil Compaction Testing

The compaction level of soil deeply impacts the crop and native vegetation growth on your site, so allow the specialists at Duraroot to test the pore size of your property. Poor compaction could prevent water from properly filtering through the soil and can lead to poor fertility for your plants. If your location has a weakened soil structure, the use of heavy machinery and equipment will only increase the problem, so know the state of your site with our soil compaction test.

Understanding Soil Compaction

Healthy soil should have a balance of pore space and minerals in order to allow air and water to filter through easily, but as disturbed soil wears down the particles will group together, trapping water within the soil and preventing it from reaching your plants. When your property’s soil loses this balance it can cause a “drought-like” experience and your vegetation will start to die off, leaving you with trouble. If you’re concerned about the compaction of your soil, let us come out and test it. We’ll help you figure out what’s going on beneath your site’s surface.

Compaction Test to Improve Soil

When we come out to do a compaction test at your location, we use high-quality equipment to help inspect and analyze your soil. Our constant rate cone penetrometers allow us to utilize a state of the art method of determining if compaction is affecting your soil and or reclamation efforts. These tools can create a soil profile that you can count on to be accurate and representative with its readings. We rely on these devices to diagnose any hidden compaction that may be occurring at your location.

Keep Soil Compaction From Effecting Your Project

Compaction plays one of the largest roles in the success of your project and the quality of your greenery, making soil compaction testing one of the most important things you can do for your property. Too often, we see agricultural yields greatly impacted after construction because of poor soil structure. Root growth and run-off also suffer from compaction, but we use practical solutions based off of sound science to reverse these and increase the productivity of your crops and vegetation.
