my math is you need to add another 10 feet to the width for the third row.

then, those species will be at least 30 wide themselves when mature.

So, you may want to plan on the hedgerow being wider than 30 right away, and then are you ok with the trees growing over the fence and into each other.

you may want to consider planting fewer big species, instead filling gap with more smaller species like hazelnut, that may eventually be shaded out anyway

If you know where the sample was taken, and how deep it was taken, you could use USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) soil survey information that includes data about sand silt and clay. available on "web soil survey" at http://websoilsurvey.sc.egov.usda.gov. it may not be the exact sand silt and clay ratio of your particular soil sample, but unless you really need to know the exact percentages for some reason is probably a more accurate average number than what you will get by trying to test it yourself.

the finger roll method is a pretty good quick method, BTW
