Our site contractor has stripped a great deal more topsoil from the construction area than will be needed to regrade the site after the homes are built? What should he do with it? We decided to use it to increase the depth of topsoil in the primary vegetable growing area between the main driveway and Meyers Road.
A bonus is that spreading it now will smother all that mugwort and will allow us to get a cover crop in soon.
The soil is a rich sandy loam with excellent tilth. We did not go to the added expense of screening it. This is New England; what would we do without rocks in the soil?
