Hello your most welcome in our article I will tell you Now once you have gotten rid of your grass sod  you finally have a chance to really look at   what the soil is like underneath it all and  it really matters what your soil is like so   in some cases you will be blessed with a lawn  that has very rich beautiful soil underneath   and in other cases like in a newer construction  site oftentimes maybe the construction folks have   put some pretty cheap fill down and so you  may be positively surprised or disappointed   with what you find.

So I’m going to start with clay   So this is the characteristic  of clay it is hard it is crumbly   it is breaking apart and if i got this moist  i would be able to form this into a clay ball   and i would be able to roll it into a worm  like shape and if i hit the ball it would   be hard i could throw the ball and catch it it  would stay together secure this is very dry clay   and that’s why it’s not behaving that way.  So the secret if you have two clay soil   you add organic matter you add compost  all right that’s how you correct that   At the other end of the spectrum we’ve got  very sandy soil so here is the ball test   Can i form a ball at all ?

No i cannot it just  falls apart it’s got a lot of sand now the great   thing about sand is it has excellent drainage  you want sandier soils for things like carrots   but it also doesn’t hold nutrients very well you  know and it also dries out quite quickly and so   you the secret to correcting to sandy soil is  you add organic material like compost or manure   it’s the same trick as what you do. And then the  third is the soil that’s growing in my garden   and that is this is what you want to be looking  for so you form a ball and it can hold a ball   shape but then if you poke at it not too hard  it crumbles apart and that is really the ideal   texture for your soil so you’ve got good aeration  you’ve got good drainage, you’ve got good   nutrient retention in there and what i did was  i took soil that was a little too clay actually   for this area and i added organic material and  what you see there is composted sheet manure   and so that is what I’m going to recommend for  you is the easiest fail-proof, one-step, one-stop   shopping way to make great soil for your veggie  garden is you just add manure you add compost and thank you so much friends for reading this article .
