Soil having properties shrink and warp during the rainy season and dry season. The percentage of lime added to the soil reduces the changing the volume of soil in different season and enhancing the engineering properties of soil. A series of laboratory test determine the optimum percentage of lime to give higher strength of the soil. After tests Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Shrinkage limit and Proctor test on soil give an idea about the behavior of soil. It shows that 9% of lime is the optimum mix for soil strength.
