How to Improve Sandy Soils

Loose and sandy particles share the same basic problems. The soil particles have large spaces between them, and water drains through them so quickly that the soil dries up before the plants roots can absorb moisture. Adding quality-amended soil from Kinney Nursery is one way to bulk up that loose soil and will help your soil absorb water more efficiently. Organic matter can also be added to loose sandy soils to help increase water retention, and aeration.

If you are unsure what kind of soil you have bring in a sample and we can also help you pick the soil additive that will help your landscaping trees and landscaping shrubs meet their full potential.
