I'm still astounded that so-called pros in the horticulture can not look at a piece of dirt and make a determination of texture and structure... Do they even have a soil test for STRUCTURE??? so-called pros can not feel the soil in their fingers to determine wet or dry... I need a tool for that job... and that all determinations about about roots are made without ever looking at the rootzone... organics, sustainablilty, back to nature is SOOOOOO complicated that it takes allthe tech we can muster and it still can't give us soil structure or air/moisture ratio or even a clue as to how to build it... what a joke... organic lawn care indeed!!!
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
