    Description

    Spring is a great time to improve gutless sand and turn it into a loamy soil, either in an existing garden or when planting a new one. 
     
    There are two methods of improving sand, one is to add lots of organic matter which needs frequent replacement, and the other way is to permanently change the structure of the soil by adding the natural kaolin clay and silts in Soil Solver. After that you only need a small amount of compost as food for the plants each year. Clay and silt helps the garden to thrive during hot summers and prevents the soil leaching nutrients by slowing down the rate that water moves down through the soil profile.  
     
    It slashes the amount of organic matter, water and fertiliser that you need to use each year. All types of plants will appreciate a loam soil, because water and nutrients stay close to the roots where the plants are able to easily access it. Trials have shown it can save up to 60% more water than simply adding compost. You will be amazed at the difference in your garden.
