    This looks like an estimate or a statement of work to be done. There is - by a convention of this sort of writing - a missing verb:

    'Soil has to be...' (if the writer wants the work done and is stipulating how it should be done).

    or

    'Soil is to be...' (if the writer is describing how the planned work is going to be done).
