Types of Soil

Soil is a mixture of minerals, organic matter and living organisms. You can have sandy soil or clay soil; loamy soil or peat bog; composted dirt or just plain dirt. The type of soil will determine how well it drains and holds water, which in turn affects what plants you can grow successfully in that area.

Soil texture refers to the size of particles in your soil—how big they are! Sand has very tiny grains, while clay has very large ones. If your soil has lots of sand in it (it’s really fine) then you might get better drainage than if there were more clay (bigger). This helps explain why you might need to adjust drainage for different types of plants: some species like moist conditions while others do better with dryer ones—and some even prefer wetter spots near streams where they can root themselves into wet areas rather than dry ones further away from water sources (although all plants need at least some access).

What Makes Soil Difficult?

Your soil may have one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Clay-like soil (soil that’s slow to drain and tends to compact)
  • Sandy soil (that has a lot of sand, which also makes it difficult for plants to grow)
  • Salty soils (with too much salt in them)

You can tell if your plant is struggling because it will be wilting, even when watered regularly.

There are many reasons to mix your own soil, including the fact that it gives you full control. Mixing your own soil allows you to add just the right amount of compost and fertilizer, as well as air and water (and even drainage if necessary). When using premade potting soil, it’s difficult to know what exactly is in it or how much of each ingredient is included in the bag. Also, mixing your own soil allows for a custom blend that will fit perfectly with any plant’s needs.


Soil is a crucial part of gardening and can be challenging to deal with. It’s important to understand the different types of soil, as well as how they affect your plants. The best thing you can do is mix your own soil if at all possible! That way, you’ll have full control over what goes into your garden beds.
