Hi all, interested in your opinions on how to remedy compacted soil.  Mason jar soil test shows sandy loam. PH is 5.5. It is a very gravelly area. I was going to dust with dolomite, use lots of compost/manure. Then seed a cover crop over it. Also thinking of some deep rooted plants?  Any other ideas?  Thanks

Hi, I have done a mason jar soil test, but after two weeks the clay is still not settling. Do I leave longer? So far it looks like 50%sand and 50% silt as I cant judge the amount of clay.   So far based on the ribbon test it is sandy loam. What would you suggest would be this type of soil?

Based on the ribbon test, the soil is sandy loam:
- Able to form a ball
- Not able to form a ribbon
- Soil is gritty

Thanks
