SEDA Homes Lake Park community in Fernandina Beach, Forida, was approximately half-built with 100 lots left to sell. Soil conditions at the site were some of the most depleted in the state.
With a goal of improving soil quality throughout the community, SEDA Homes completed a trial with Wild Earth 5% For Life soil consisting of stabilized 1/2 compost blended with ABS.
Incorporating Wild Earth compost with ABS into soils that are disturbed or damaged by human development (such as typical construction practices) has many benefits for the overall health of the soil ecosystem including:
- Improved water retention
- Increased infiltration rates
- Greater binding ability
- pH stabilization
- Micronutrient enrichment
