The basic issues of turf problems here is the moisture/air ratio of the soil... I have some lawns in which the air is pounded out of the soil with excessive daily irrigation,,, while at the same time I have sandier soils that have so much air and so little water that the root zone is always in sustenance mode...

Once the moisture/air ratio is worked out then you look at CEC,,, for the availability of the nutrients added to the grass...

With a little effort we can all begin to think about plants as living things... once we provide the best habitat for grass that we can,,, then it all makes sense...

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
