And, yes, concrete is amazingly alkaline. I didn't know this until I did a bit of research, but it can have a pH of 13!
Coral is (I think) mostly calcium carbonate, which is a bit on the alkaline side, but not in concrete's league. Hmm. I guess acidifying the soil might eat away the coral, and you'd have a sinkhole where your lawn should be.

Geez, with basically solid coral underfoot, explosives would probably be a spectacularly bad idea, with headlines like "Island of Barbados mysteriously sinks."

Good luck with the project!

I was looking through some of my older photos and found this picture, which was taken somewhere in NW New Mexico (I forgot the location).

Christians, feel free to shop at the Adult Video store, but Jesus is watching you.
