When taking the prevention of soil moisture loss into account while preparing a site for construction, the desiccation effects can be reduced. In general, partially raising the land lot using the cunette method, complemented by dirt for the remainder, will improve the retention capacity of the soil. If the lot is integrally raised, water is not retained as well in the soil.
