Soil can be in disrepair from a standpoint of growing healthy plants. It is either naturally hard and dense such as clay or it has been damaged by amendments. We are going to address repair for dense clay soil.
Soil Repair for Clay Soil
Clay soil is hard and dense by nature. The fine clay particles erode into the smallest air pockets that make it hard and dense. There is often a reason the fine particles have eroded and it is usually a function of sodium in the soil. In order to repair clay the destructive dispersing sodium has to be addressed. Gypsum seems to be the most popular amendment to get the sodium in check. However it only has a temporary result. Over time the sodium can become free again and lead to further the damage . ClayMend can help by buffering the sodium to the soil so it cannot become free again. It then works to group the fine particles together into larger aggregates that are more granular in nature. This makes the soil more porous so air, water and nutrients have better flow into the soil. Roots can reach deeper into the soil and nutrients that were physically bound by the hard structure can be released.
Some organic residue in the soil can be broken down by the microbial activity encouraged by ClayMend. The nutrients can be returned to the soil and reduce the need for fertilizer applications.
