Outdoor Soil?

i am growing outdoors and have found a good private spot with a water source.

the question is: the soil is loose sandy clay, with nutrients. it looks like it will support good growth with fertilizers, trace minerals etc.

should i dig it up and mix with potting soil and polymere crystals, or should i just go with whats there? it doesnt look bad at all.

thanx!

i see

thanx for the reply. yeah, i think ill dig 3' down and use some of the sandy soil mixed with the poly crystals and black topsoil. there should always be a good source of water in the sandy clay base at the bottom.

thanx dude!

first off man...clay is NEVER good when your looking for a grow area so make sure you dig far enough down to where your roots wont hit any clay because they probly will become rootbound

Sandy clay amended with top soil or other blend would be just fine. Try adding some perlite, sand, worm castings, peat and/or compost to it and you should be fine. If drainage is an issue - holding water - then dig the holes deeper...and the polymer crystals...Great Idea!

Keep us posted...and don't forget the "Outdoor Journal"!:smoke2:
