Here we see thinning which started shortly after I dug into the roots to have a look...

This continues to grow and be mowed as well... the main purpose of this experiment was to determine the formation of soil structure as the grass grew and the soil slowly dried out...
There was a bit of standing water among the rocks at the bottom of the jar and the soil is drying VERY slowly as one might expect in a jar...

This is plain old garden soil and seems to be becoming more granular all the time...
When the grass uses up all the water, once I get it outside, we should see a lot better structure than the mud I stuck in there...
