Soil Stabilization as a Finished Product
The process described above was for stabilization that prepares a stable base for a road, but there are other uses for soil stabilization. Some surfaces are now constructed entirely of stabilized native soil. The soil is hardened with the same processes and then used for pedestrian and vehicular traffic on trails, roads, and parking lots. This is now seen as a more “green” method of making a low-impact road through rugged terrain, for example.
