It says " many people add lime to counteract the low ph" I guess the opposite is true. I'm in limestone country and decomposed granite is often promoted for our soils.

I did not know that Thanks for sharing....it it would make total sense.
I am writing the section on limestone at the moment....so I will chase that concept up and see if I can find any research on it.
PS. I have been told on another forum that sharing my ideas and sharing what I know like I am is against their rules...gee I hope that is not the case here, cause all I want to do is share and help people out.
My son lives in Bend Oregon where I visited him for a while. He said the ground was pumice. It did look more sandy than dirt. A river went by and
between the two (river and pumice) the area looked quite fertile. He said tho, that people imported dirt when planting lawns. It made me think the
pumice cut the roots maybe? Still I know the whole area I saw couldn't have been all imported dirt!
