Soil Evaluation

It is occasionally possible to use your own soil from your site for a earth building project. To do this Terra Firma would need to evaluate the soil on your site for suitability.

A suitable soil will more than likely be found within 100km of any given site (still within a economically viable range).

In a new soil we will test for shrinkage, water penetration, compressive strength and also suitability for the actual construction process.
