What is Sandy Soil?

  Added by: MedMan    Viewed: 645 times   Not Yet Rated
Sandy soils have an open soil structure. The particle size is large and there is a lot of open space between and around the particles. They take up water readily and are sharp draining. They are often short on nutrients but easy to work. Soils should contain at least 70 percent by volume sand particles to be classified as "sand".
