What Garden Soil Can I Expect To Find In My Backyard?
Many regions within the City West Water service area have urbic soils. These garden soils have been significantly altered by human activity. These are often found in areas of new development, housing estates and new builds. Urbic soils can often be challenging for the home gardener to work with as the heavy clay subsoil has often been brought to the surface, while the topsoil has been removed. This type of soil often contains remnants of rubble, builders’ waste and spoil material.
