I’m involved in a golf course project that requires about 700 cubic yards of screened topsoil. Sounds simple? No. It’s turned into a major fiasco. The engineer loaded a five page specification into the contract documents and the lab tech claims it’s missing a key testing criteria. Engineering firms do this all the time; they add a “boiler plate” loam specification into the contract documents and it’s up to the contractor to comply. I’m concerned that this could turn into a non-compliance issue especially if the grass doesn’t grow due to insufficient watering. Anyone out there ever see a concise, readable, practical loam specification?
