Garden Soil
Which Types Loam, Clay & Sandy

There are three basic types of garden soil, loam, clay and sand

Loam is the best, with just the right amount of nutrients and friability to ensure good penetration, drainage and adequate moisture retention.

Clay - based soil is heavy and absorbs water more slowly resulting in a longer period of retention.Clay soil also composes more easily, forcing roots closer the surface in a search for room to grow, leaving them vulnerable to drought and white grub damage.

Sandy soil is easily penetrated and drains quickly, but also dries out the fastest and will most likely need twice the watering during the hottest months.
