What does remediate soils mean?

In an effort to set the new trees up for success, Parks plans to remove the compacted nutrient depleted clay-based soil in the medians and replace it with soil that is well draining, healthy, and nutrient enriched that will allow the new tree root systems to grow deep down into the earth offering a strong, stable anchor, and better access to water, rather than crawling along the surface, searching for water and causing street and sidewalk damage, as they have in the past.
