What Is Sandy Soil?

Answer

Sandy soil is simply a type of soil that contains visible large particles to the unaided eye, usually light in colour and stays loose allowing moisture to penetrate easily. This soil type cannot form a ball when squeezed in the fist and feels coarse in texture when wet or dry. However, sand occurs naturally as a granular material made up of fine divided mineral and rock material.
