hmm i thought that humus was pretty much defined as an ideal soil made up of organic matter? Either way, perhaps I should know my terminology a little better before throwing such words around.

Anyways, as I stated in a previous post, I am about 2km away from Gerogian Bay which runs off from Lake Huron. Below is a picture of my area before my house was built. The sand is VERY fine texture.

.

It's not just my area either. It's the whole town, and I'm assuming the surrounding towns. Water holding capacity would be standard on a soil test?

I'm not so concerned for my own house really, but the potential to offer services to clients. I can inform them (if they didn't already know) about ammending the soil and the length of time it could take to make a difference, or go the route of trying to sell them a whole new lawn, removing and replacing sand with soil.
