How to Improve Heavy Soils

Heavy clay soils tend to have poor drainage, and become compacted easily. A waterlogged, or shallow-rooted plant will be more vulnerable to disease, insect damage, or nutrient deficiencies. To improve the texture, drainage and workability of dense clay soils organic matter must be added to help add air spaces and break up the compacted clay.
