Bob Pine and John Swallow or Pine and Swallow Environmental will lecture Wednesday March 23, 6:00pm at the Arnold Arboretum's Hunnewell Building about manufactured soils—formulated to provide highly predictable and consistent performance. They are a means to stretch topsoil resources while also improving the horticultural performance and sustainability of soil environments. Today, many landscape architectural designs must use manufactured soils to meet sustainability and high performance project requirements. Bob Pine and John Swallow have designed manufactured soils for projects throughout the United States and worldwide. They will describe the opportunities and challenges of modern soil design with the objective of helping landscape professionals better understand their options and the process of specifying and using these soils.
