What is Soil?


Soil is made up of organic matter, rock particles, clay, and other minerals. It is generally understood as the top layer of the earth's ground covering. Amended soil is produced when you harvest virgin soil and add processed components such as sand, compost, wood chips, or biochar to meet a certain specification. Many specifications used include but aren't limited to organic percentage, minimum sieve analysis, pH, nitrate, soluble salts, and percent ranges fro clay, silt, and sand. Soil can be amended to better accommodate certain projects or plants based on some of the specification listed above. Some varieties of soil hold more water while other types are better for promoting drainage or have different mineral, compositions. Pairing your project with the ideal soil type and a mixture of components will help ensure success for your project.

Types of Soil


There are three primary types of soil, determined by the amount of clay, silt, or sand particles present.


Clay Soil
  • Clay soil is used in pottery and ceramics and contains a high percentage of clay and silt. The particles are small and cling together, holding water and nutrients well. However, clay soil is susceptible to compaction, which can make it difficult for the moisture and nutrients to reach plant roots and for roots to penetrate the soil. You can identify clay soil by its sticky, slippery feel.
Sandy Soil
  • Sandy soil is composed of larger, coarser particles. It drains quickly, but it isn't effective at holding moisture and nutrients. 
Loams
  • Loam has a good balance of clay, silt, sand, and organic material. It is the best type of soil for gardening, drainage, and retention of moisture and nutrients.
