What would you like to do?
Clay loam soil would have more clay then a typical loam type soil. Loam soil is composed of sand, silt, humus, and clay in about an even concentration of each.40-40-40-10…% respectively Clay loam soil is soil that has up to 25% clay, 30 to 50% silt, and the rest sand.
Clay soil is sticky and drains well and loam soil drains but also holds nutrients well.
Hi in answer to the question there are a few answers as clay loams have a different pH depending on what they are being used for. For grass, clayloam has a recommended pH of b…etween 6.0 and 6.2 and on arable land for crops etc between 6.5 and 6.7 however depending on what has been spread or added to the clay loam can effect its pH dramatically. Hope this helps a little
silty clay loam is a substance made of mostly silt alittle clay and a little loam
Loam is a type of soil that has sand, silt and clay. A sandy loam would have more of sand in it, with the particles more free and gritty. The water holding capacity of san…dy loam would be quite ideal for most plants as it retains just the right amount of water.
Lome is contained by equal amounts of sand, silt, clay, and organic matter.
any soil can be acidic to a point where lime is necessary. the difference in soil textures relates to how much lime is needed. ie a sandy loam would need less lime to get the …same results that a lot of lime would do in a clay loam. check you soil pH first
watch your watering
Clay soil is a mineral soil, yes. All soils contain minerals. Clay soil is a dense soil, and loam is a looser, lighter soil with more air space and composted plant matter …in it.
Add sand or spred lime in the soil Add sand or spred lime in the soil Add sand or spred lime in the soil
The best things that grow in Sandy Loam is orchards, melons, avocado, tomatoes, squash and citrus, among other plants and crops.
Drainage is a reason why nematodes affect plants is sandy soil more than in clay or loam. Clay or loam may end up retaining too much water for the roundworms in question. Infi…ltration and percolation of water tends to be faster and non-saturating in sandy soils, which offer a drier environment, which adult nematodes prefer for ensuring the next generation's sustainability.

The colors can vary depending on the amount of organic matter in the soil but a good rich sandy loam should be dark if not black. It will also have a good structure and drain …well holding together when dug up but still be friable and crumble well.
