Learn about the science and art of soils from the General Manager of the Custom Soils division at Dunning, located in Farmington, CT. With the skills of a master soils chef, Neil specializes in developing recipes for individual situations. At a bulldozed construction site, he matched the local soils and returned the site to what previously existed, blending with the local environment. Neil creates soils that are custom engineered for ballfields, golf courses, rooftop gardens, rain gardens, commercial marijuana growing and more, and he oversees the extensive composting production. Neil has recently created soil for a riverbed restoration project, returning a recently dredged riverbed to its natural composition, per mandates for river protection. Neil earned a degree in Accounting from Quinnipiac University, and a degree in Agronomy from UConn. After working 10 years at a golf course, he joined Dunning where he works in soils and sales.
