Resource Management, Inc. (RMI) is the premier residuals management company in the Northeast. We specialize in developing restoration and reclamation plans for spent sand and gravel operations, sites that have been mined, or locations with severely disturbed soils, such as roadside construction sites.
RMI provides a cost-effective alternative to importing topsoil and other expensive restoration options. Our cost-effective reclamation services and products ensure success – from restoring the market value of disturbed land, to transforming low-quality loam into a high-dollar topsoil.
Disturbed Land and Gravel Pit Restorations
RMI uses Engineered Topsoil for reclamation of disturbed sites. Engineered Topsoil combines materials high in organic matter and nutrients with a common borrow sand to create high quality topsoil. Engineered Topsoil can be used on-site for a one-time reclamation or can be harvested annually for sale to high-end specialty markets.
Engineered Topsoil is the best choice for demanding construction earth work. For road projects and other development work, Engineered Topsoil outperforms conventional loam on all counts. And, Engineered Topsoil is typically more cost-effective for any project.
Engineered Topsoil is recommended for use over conventional loam by engineers who have seen the difference in performance. Improve your bottom line and project performance by using RMI Engineered Topsoil.
Engineered Topsoil is an ideal product:
- Virtually no soil loss on 3:1 slopes, even prior to vegetative cover
- Withstands severe rain storms; high water-holding capacity
- Can reduce mulching requirements and length of uninterrupted slopes
- More dense vegetative cover than with conventional topsoil
- Long-term pool of soil nutrients provides continued vegetative cover over long periods of time
- Eliminates need to strip topsoil for reclamation
- Provides more sustainable vegetative cover
- Protects surrounding surface water and natural resources by reducing erosion potential
How is Engineered Topsoil made?
Engineered Topsoil is produced through an engineered blending of organic residuals and a mineral base material which results in a nutrient-balanced vegetative growing medium that is superior to native loam in its ability to retain moisture and resist erosion.
The soil-building characteristics of the organic residuals in Engineered Topsoil will sustain a healthy grass ecosystem with minimum inputs of maintenance or fertilizers. RMI’s Engineered Topsoil typically consists of Paper Fiber, Biosolids and common borrow sand.
Staff soil scientists and agronomists will assist you in determining the best application for your project, including site, soil, and nutrient management considerations. RMI product quality and technical support ensures that you get the results you are looking for in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner.
