Soils including ground improvement


Explanation:
Bodenverb. is probably Bodenverbesserung.
Alternatively, you can use soil improvement, but this is not the usual terminology.

well, good luck


Explanation:
There is no such terminology as "(types of)Grounds", and especially not "Soil Upgrades" in this field. This answer is nonsense. But you must know what you are doing.
