Im thinking of buying this land to start my permaculture project. Its about 4 acres. There are two what I believe are check dams on the top side of the property and bottom.
The soil in the middle of the land has deep cracks in it. Can you please help me identify this soil type and advise me on what its good for and what it isnt.
Hello Y, can you do me a favor? Take a glass jar, it doesn't have to be to big. Scoop up some of the soil , and fill the jar about 1/3rd full. Then add water and shake it up so that the soil is mixed nicely with the water. Then let it set for several hours without moving it. You should see layers forming. The heavier sand will fall out first and then clay and then silt. Take a picture of the resulting jar with layers, and post it for us.
If you think that you have different soil types in different areas, you can do this with each area.
