Q.What Can I Plant In Top Soil Over Concrete?
We removed a large concrete staircase in the front of our home and we have found another concrete slab that comes up to the foundation. We have existing landscaping (to the right of the removed cement) that we wanted to be able to tie into while adding plant life where the removed concrete stairs and sidewalk once was. This cement slab is quite large and appears to be quite deep. We also have concerns as to why they would have done such a thing in the build. What could be be disturbing further? I am at a loss and any advice is greatly appreciated.
