Soil type: Sandy

Sandy soil is gritty, large-grained, quick-draining, and exceptionally light—which is great when you’re ready to plant and till but makes proper fertilization difficult. For too-sandy soil, mix in loamy soil, add a layer of compost on top, and use mulch. Root vegetables prefer sandy soil—its loose grains let them grow without forcing them into strange shapes.
