What the Expert Says:

No doubt it would. First of all, the topsoil will be greatly disturbed during construction. Thereafter, the soil would not benefit from practices such as crop rotation and fallow years. Of course, keeping a garden and composting over the long term can help restore soil conservation and productivity.
