Abstract/Contents:Discusses lawn contouring, suggesting to consider "what is to be done with the subsoil which has been removed from the basement excavation in process of constructing the dwelling." States that "soils thrown out of a basement excavation should be hauled off the place and dumped, unless used for underfills in grading, where they practically revert to their former position and are covered with a foot or more of topsoil. Due to their long exclusion from fresh air and sunshine, subsoils are toxic or poisonous in character, and entirely unfit for surface use where any green crop is to be grown." Discusses timing and preparations. Also discusses grading, and the elimination of steep terraces.
