Asphalt Jungle

Dewatering and fertilization by in situ artificial soils recycling : this is the Asphalt jungle concept key aim. Thanks to FAIRE project accelerator, garden takes place in Elogie-Siemp (social landlord) mineral courtyard, on 11th Paris district. The easy tech way of doing may be resume in cutting asphalt, de-compacting sub-layers, putting organic materials and planting without exporting any material.

Fertile substrate is generated by mixing compacted and sandy existing soil with organics material to creat a “neo-soil” (also called “technosol”) composed by different recreated horizons able to care poor soil plants. The plant selection is a mix of ornamental, regional and pioneers plants. This experiment illustrates fertilizing strategy on urban soils which may adapt to different contexts for impervious soil reversibility.
