Take a steel rod of die 16mm or more and length 5’ – 6’ long with chisel shape in front..

You also need a ball pin hammer of  5 kg weight.

Strike the rod perpendicular to the land.

If the rod inserts easily inside the earth in 2-3 blows then the soil strata is loose.

The SBC Must below as well.

A soil test is highly recommended for such soil condition for designing the foundation.


If the rod inserts inside the earth surface after 25-35 blows then soil condition is moderate. Soil test is not recommended.

If the rod doesn’t insert inside the earth then the strata is too hard and you may need digging equipment while foundation works.


You are recommended to this activity in numerous places of your plot to check the soil condition.


After this you may go ahead and fill up this inspection form/checklist of site inspection for construction works.
