On page 49 of the LEEDv4.1 guide it states that soil testing is only needed on imported soils. Under Step-by-Step guidance, it states "Soil tests are only required for imported soils". Then on page 50 it states "Test the soil to be restored or replaced and incorporate test recommended amendments". Furthermore, under Required Documentation it states " Soil test analysis results with recommended amendments to be provided".
This seem contradictory. How can you provide soil recommendations without testing the existing soil conditions? What soil testing is required?
