Soil Improvement & Lime Modification

Found some good information here from L’Hoist UK (who are a binder supplier to the Soil Stabilisation industry), which looks at how “lime reacts with water and clays in the soils to effect physical and chemical changes that improve the characteristics of the soils for handling and engineering purposes“.

The post looks at how Lime products can be used to greatly improve soils to make them useful on site rather than exporting the material and importing costly aggregates.  Typical applications and uses of Soil Improvement/Lime Modification and Soil Stabilisation include:

  • Creation of winter working platforms
  • Waterlogged sites (quick reduction¬†in moisture content)
  • Piling mats
  • Embankment stability
  • Haul road construction
  • Car parks
  • Lorry parks
  • Foundations for floor slabs
  • Highway pavement construction
  • Airport runways, taxiways and aprons
  • Reclamation and remediation of contaminated land
For more information on Soil Improvement/Lime Modification and Soil Stabilisation and how these processes could be used on a site you are currently working on or looking at then please give us a call on 01254 238 700 or send us an email to and we would be happy to assist.
