Summer is a great time to stabilize soil. Warmer weather makes the soil more workable and less likely to crack. Many soil stabilization products are on the market, but not all are created equal. Here are three cost-effective soil stabilization products to use this summer.
Limestone soil stabilization products
Limestone is a popular soil stabilization product and has been used for centuries as a durable way to stabilize soil. It is made of calcium carbonate and is found in many parts of the world. However, there are limitations to using limestone soil stabilization products. Limestone is not effective in all soil types and can be challenging to apply evenly over a large area.
Water soil stabilization products
Water is another affordable soil stabilization product that may companies turn to control dust. How does it work? Water is applied to the soil surface with a spray system or roller. Once water saturates the soil it binds the soil particles together. However, water may not be as cost-effective in arid areas due to evaporation. Constant reapplication of water can lead to increased fuel and labor costs for water trucks.
Polymers soil stabilization products
Polymers are soil stabilization products that are made of synthetic materials. They are available in different formulations and can be applied to the soil in various ways. Polymers are durable and have a long shelf life. They are also resistant to UV radiation, making them ideal for stabilizing soil in sunny regions.
