What is soil made from?
Soil is a mixture of tiny particles of rock, dead plants and animals, air and water. Different soils have different properties depending on their composition.
- Sandy soil is pale colored and has large particles. These create lots of small air gaps. Water drains through them easily so it usually feels dry.
- Clay soil is usually sticky and has small particles. They contain very few air gaps and water does not drain through it easily.
- Chalky soil is a light brown soil. Water drains through it quickly.
- Peat does not contain any rock particles. It’s made from very old decayed plants and is dark, crumbly and rich in nutrients.

Why use organic matter potting soil
Organic soil is a soil that is created by the decomposition of plant and animal materials to create a nutrient and mineral rich mini ecosystem with microorganisms that feed and breathe life back into the soil. Or, to put it another way, organic soil is how soil exists in nature. Before chemicals were added. Before synthetic and modified ingredients depleted the soil of its natural power, this is how soil existed. Think of the forest floor. Leaves and trees fall, fruits and vegetables grow and are eaten, animals feed and leave waste. All this activity directly impacts the soil and creates a power-packed foundation for future growth. It creates a soil that is “living.”
Benefits of using Organic matter potting soil
The most obvious one is the environmentally friendly. Using organic soil is using a soil that is made up of all-natural ingredients. Simply put, it is putting soil made from the environment, back into the environment. That creates soil sustainability that over time continues to further enrich your soil. More lush, healthier plants, fruits and vegetables that are safe for you and your family and safe for the environment.
Organic matter potting soil can save you time and money
Adding organic material to native soil helps contribute to the balance of drainage and retention of water. In most cases organic material helps keep water in the soil longer than synthetic soils. This means that what you are growing will have better access to the water it needs and that translates to less frequent watering.
Organic matter soil can improve your soil found in your garden or landscape.
By adding organic matter back into your native soil, you can turn nutrient deficient, difficult-to-grow-in dirt into thriving, living soil. Knowing the different soil types can help you determine how best to treat your soil and how to enrich it. Soil types from sandy to clay to silt can each be improved with organic matter.
Adding organic fertilizers as nutrient packed as organic soils are, plants still need fertilizer. Nitrogen deficiency is one of the major causes for plants to shrivel up and turn yellow. This can easily be solved by introducing a fertilizer regimen. When growing fruits and vegetables, which are notorious for being heavy feeders make sure you add an organic fertilizer to your soil at the time of planting to ensure success!
