Soil Structure Is Important!

Soil structure refers to the arrangement of soil particles and how they stick together. An ideal structure would be made up of crumbs that stick together to form larger clumps. This arrangement allows for small pockets of space called micro pores
that hold water for the grass and a fairly equal amount of larger spaces called macro pores. Macro pores are air spaces that allow oxygen to get to the roots of the grass. Both types of pore spaces are equally important to growing a healthy stand of grass. The two different pore spaces have an inverse relationship with each other. As one type of pore space is increased the other decreases in amount. If the soil is a heavy clay, it will be comprised of mostly micro pores and can hold water around the roots of the grass. This greater concentration of water-holding pore space limits the amount of oxygen available to the root system and can increase incidence of disease in turf. On the other hand sandy soils can be very droughty because they contain a disproportionate amount of air spaces. A greater balance of pore spaces can be achieved on native soils by top dressing the lawn.
