This year’s event will be the third soils conference to be organised by soil scientist and landscape consultant Tim O’Hare, and it promises landscape architects, contractors, garden designers, developers, topsoil manufacturers and other industry professionals a day of invaluable professional development, discussion and debate, with presentations by some of the country’s leading experts in their respective fields.

Tim O’Hare, principal, Tim O’Hare Associates

Tim White, senior associate, Tim O’Hare Associates

Carol Devos, CEO, TerraCottem

Martin Gammie, managing director, Consulting with Trees Limited

Dr Louisa Robinson-Boyer, head of research and development, PlantWorks Ltd

Subjects will include:

  • Soil management practice on greenfield sites – North West Cambridge case study
  • The beneficial use of new generation soil conditioning technology to improve soil performance
  • Thinking outside the tree pit – what sustainable urban tree planting really looks like
  • The role of mycorrhizal fungi in facilitating water and nutrient uptake

A feature of this year’s conference will be a Soil Surgery, held during the day’s networking periods. Members of the Tim O’Hare Associates team will be on hand to help delegates with their specific soil issues.
