Mean ± SE soil carbon (a) and nitrogen (b) concentrations, C/N (c), and bulk density (d) across yards (n = 20; n = 16, 40–60 and 0–60 cm), fields (n = 13), and forests (n = 12). Asterisks indicate differences (p < 0.05) of least-square means that adjust for site-specific pre-development legacies. Forest soil bulk density was not different than field at 20–40 cm depth
