Scenic Hudson Long Dock Park – Beacon, NY

This two-year project with the Scenic Hudson Land Trust continued it’s work in Beacon, NY to complete this stunning riverside park. Mr. Charles Duprey has personally worked for almost a decade on this project, carefully constructing a number of soils to meet the stringent designs of Craul Soil Science.

Scenic Hudson has sweeping views of the Hudson River, kayak launches and a river front trail. This phase two work was mostly in the Kayak launch and barn area with soils provided by Naturcycle. It will complete the park for its finished uses.  Black Top Maintenance of Poughkeepsie provided the site work and much of the finishing touches to this great addition to the Scenic Hudson Trust.

Private Residence – Canandaigua, NY

One of Naturcycle’s many strengths is having two soil blending locations in New York State to service customers. Our Finger Lakes area work was completed at our Rochester, NY area soil blending site. We created an engineered sandy loam to achieve a high standard of quality and consistency for a large private residence on Canandaigua Lake. The Landscape Architect and Landscape Contractor, RM Landscapes of Hilton, NY sought out the best materials for this job. Unlike naturally harvested topsoil, Naturcycle’s manufactured soils are the same from start of project to finish.

Also, we provided quality control testing on a variety of important soil characteristics as each batch was produced. We only utilized the highest quality compost and provided the logistics for delivery to ease the burden on already busy Landscapers. Naturcycle works to achieve the best results with a focus on customer service.

Naturcycle offers a variety of engineered soil products from both locations like Topsoil’s, Planting Mixes, DOT specified soils, Green Roof Media, Rain Garden Blends and more.

Croton Water Treatment Plant – Bronx, NY

In fall of 2018, a good example of Naturcycle’s ability to understand and interpret specification. We worked with the contractors onsite to meet the engineered topsoil needs and provide a quality, high organic matter, friable soil for plantings and repairs to existing work at the Water Treatment Facility on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. Naturcycle provided a few hundred yards of specialty soils for the site.

Mr. Duprey previously worked on the massive Green Roof for this huge urban project. He personally developed the final intensive Blend with input from highly acclaimed green roof design firm Rana Creek Design. He oversaw tens of thousands of yards of manufactured soils, green roof media, and other soils for the site, along with the logistics of delivery and a rigorous testing plan for the soils.

Bloomfield Central Schools Rootzone Mix –  Bloomfield, NY

Rootzone mixes are a common soil engineered for athletic field and golf course construction. This low organic matter, fast draining sand-based soil is used for turf applications. It is commonly used in high performance areas, with high use and lots of activity such as an Athletic field. The right sands, the best compost and a strong understanding of soils manufacturing is needed to make these specialized soils.

Naturcycle provided thousands of cubic yards of a Rootzone Mix from our Victor, NY location. Working with the landscape contractor we created a locally made mix. These new athletic fields at the school showed excellent results and are working well two years after installation.

Baypointe Condominiums – Greenwich, CT

This engineered soil project in Greenwich, Connecticut provided the storm-water management for a large new condominium complex. Naturcycle worked with the Landscape Contractor to offer an alternative to the existing specification. Leveraging another rain garden project’s recent analysis Naturcycle offered a sand-based rain garden blend with some small differences from the initial design.

Our professional presentation, quality testing and knowledgeable staff helped get the Naturcycle Rain Garden Engineered Soil Blend approved, as is. This helped reduced the project costs and provided a readily available solution. Contractor and Owner where both happy with our hard work on submittals and well-made soils. Naturcycle offers a variety of soils for storm-water water uses and is pleased to review specifications at any time.

Mobile Life Support Services Site, Planting Soils – Poughkeepsie NY

Naturcycle Engineered Planting Soils where used to meet the project needs of a Landscape Architect in this new construction project. In the City of Poughkeepsie, New York, an ambulance service company built a new building. The very poor soil quality in this old industrial city required an imported Planting Soil to establish a diverse landscape at the new site.

Naturcycle Planting Soil Engineered Blend was used to meet the projects demands. This sand-base blend was mixed with United States Seal of Testing Assurance Certified Compost and was blended nearby in our local to New York City yard. The few hundred yards of finished soil was rapidly delivered, as well satisfying the clients’ needs to wrap up the job. Using the highest quality compost and soils are Naturcycle’s only goals.
