Soil and Soilless

What is Soil Texture?

Soil particles are classified by size and shape.

Clay particles are the smallest and flat. Sand particles are the largest and boulder shaped.

Silt particles are intermediate. The physical performance of soils is mostly a function of particle size and shape.

"Soil Texture" is a term that is used to discuss the physical properties of soils based on the relative percentages of these different particles.
