Oversaturated Soil

How to Fix Oversaturated Soil

Good soil is essential for healthy plants, but even rich soil can suffer from excess water due to over-watering, broken irrigation systems, specific soil types, or terrain characteristics.

Understanding the characteristics of well-drained soil is crucial. Signs of poor drainage include evident water runoff and yellowing leaves, indicating root suffocation.  

To remedy waterlogged soil, incorporating organic matter like compost can enhance drainage and promote better aeration. Additionally, selecting plant species adapted to wet conditions, such as weeping willow and blue elderberry, can ensure successful growth.  

Corporate Responsibility Soil

Making Soil Healthy

It’s not just dirt; it’s a habitat teeming with microorganisms vital for plant health. Healthy soil, with balanced pH, nutrients, structure, and organic matter, nourishes and protects plants. Unhealthy soil, compacted and lacking nutrients, stifles growth and root development.  

Discover soil types like clay, sandy, silty, chalky, peaty, and loamy, each needing unique care. Healthy soil contains vital nutrients, proper pH, good drainage, and air movement. Signs of poor soil include clumping, stunted roots, surface water accumulation, and absence of earthworms.

Improve soil quality by adding organic matter and mulch and consider biochar amendments for long-term benefits.
