Healthy soil is vital to healthy plants. Turf grass and other plantings tend to respond growthbest within fertile soil environments. Soil blends are designed to contain the right amount of nutrients for specific applications like the promotion of plant growth.
Soil containing good amounts of organic material has a granular feel to it and will easily crumble. This granular aspect enables this type of soil to contain mineral materials inside individual soil particles. These qualities allow for an even flow of water, minerals and air, promoting healthy turf and plant growth.
Soil types vary depending on how much air flows between soil particles. Adding organic material to soils that contain too much clay or a less than ideal sand, can help stabilize its chemical and nutrient makeup.
