Specifying Engineered Soils for Sustainable Vegetation


Sponsored by: Profile Products LLC

Specifying topsoil, compost, or Engineered Soil for a project can be a challenging task. Between product inconsistency and lack of availability, environmental challenges, and big product and transfer costs…how can you specify the best solution for your project?

Join returning speaker Marc S. Theisen for a FREE webcast exploring how to specify Engineered Soil Media™ (ESM™) as a cost-effective alternative to topsoil, compost, and other conventional organic soil amendments. We’ll review how you can test your soil for organic content; select proper ESM application rates; calculate the cost benefits; and apply the best practices from real-world case studies and research.

In this webcast, we’ll take an in-depth look at the innovations in Engineered Soil Media (ESM), its application opportunities within erosion control and vegetative growth, and its benefits compared to topsoil and other conventional organic amendments. Within this discussion, Theisen will outline the systematic approach (the 5 Fundamentals) to specifying ESM, while addressing the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) Format. Theisen will walk through, step-by-step, how to estimate the costs (and cost-savings) of using ESM compared to topsoil and/or compost placement using a specialized calculator and established best practices with updated, real-world case studies.
