Soil Sealing (long version)

289 views

Soil sealing happens when you cover the soil with an impermeable surface like asphalt or concrete. This procedure is of course useful because you need a certain stability for buildings and roads but with soil sealing you lose a variety of important soil functions, above all soil fertility. If the soil has been 'sealed', it is important that it is used efficiently later. A more integrated approach would be to limit the sealing wherever possible, mitigate it with measures to soften the damage, or to compensate by returning unused land to a more natural state.
