Photo - Good Soil vs. Clay Soil

Here is sample of clay soil.  Notice the gray, chunky texture of the soil.
The molecules that make up clay soil are more tighly bound
together, which means the soils hold onto water more tightly than good soil.
Here is a sample of good potting soil.  It is darker and has
a finer texture than clay soil.  Water can drain better through
this kind of soil.
