Healthy soils are good for sustainable landscape and for the environment protection. Its protect wildlife, allow water infiltration, reduces soil erosion, allow carbon sequestration from the atmosphere, ensure the growth of trees. These functions are disturbed if the soil drainage is not ensured due to the strong compaction or to the presence of artefacts (bricks, concrete, plastic and others). Frequently, the soils in the individual gardens are highly compact in the underlying layer at about 20 cm deep. Top soil is usually loose because the setting up of the gardens in the residential buildings occurs by levelling of land surface and cover it with fertile soil brought from other locations. After carrying out field investigations we found that the fertile soil material used to cover the land surface is not sufficient to ensure growth of all species in individual gardens. The results obtained during the investigations made it possible to develop a useful diagram for the identification of the owners of the dwellings and the gardens of the areas where the soil properties are deficient and some measures necessary to reduce the restrictions for plant growth.
