Sandy Soil

Sandy Soil is a soil which contains from 50 to 100 percent fine sands, as well as coarse sands with 35 to 100 percent fine gravel and some fine sand. Sandy Soil is an easy-to-work soil but needs lots of amending with compost and other organic material to increase nutrient content and retain moisture.

Because it has more air spaces (due to the granular nature), fertilizers and other nutrients wash through the soil more easily. The porosity also means that water drains quickly, thus increasing the need for frequent watering. Choosing xeriscape or "water wise" plants is an option where water is an issue.
