Types of Soil in Lawns Throughout Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex:
Surrey Lawn Soil Types:
Throughout Surrey, soils can vary greatly within only a few miles; Guildford has areas of lime-rich chalk deposits, but more acidic loamy soils in other parts where soil moisture can be low.
Haslemere in Surrey has very acidic sandy soil which often leads to woodrush being prevalent. Godalming, Surrey and surrounding villages like Shalford, Surrey and Bramley, Surrey tend to be less acidic and free draining.
Hampshire Lawn Soil Types:
Waterlooville, Hampshire has good soil in which grass can thrive if cultivated correctly. Lawns can become waterlogged in times of heavy rainfall so lawn aeration will help reduce the impact.
Petersfield, with its slightly acidic loamy soil tends to be free draining and suitable for reseeding in spring and autumn.
Liphook is prone to soil moisture shortages, particularly in the summer months, so use of a sprinkler when permitted will keep lawns hydrated.
West Sussex Soil Types:
Soils in the Towns of Chichester, West Sussex and Bognor Regis tend to be loamy. They can be prone to flooding in the autumn months, so lawn aeration will reduce waterlogging in lawns
- Clay soils: have over 25 percent clay. Also known as heavy soils, these are potentially fertile as they hold nutrients bound to the clay minerals in the soil.
- But they also hold a high proportion of water due to the capillary attraction of the tiny spaces between the numerous clay particles.
- They drain slowly and take longer to warm in spring than sandy soils. Clay soils are easily compacted when trodden on while wet and they bake hard in summer, often cracking noticeably.
- Sandy soils: have high proportion of sand and little clay. Also known as light soils, they drain quickly after rain or watering, and are easy to cultivate and work. They warm more quickly in spring than clay soils.
- On the downside, they dry out quickly and are low in plant nutrients, which are quickly washed out by rain. Sandy soils are often very acidic.
- Silt soils: comprised mainly of intermediate sized particles, are fertile, fairly well drained and hold more moisture than sandy soils, but are easily compacted.
- Loam soils: comprise a mixture of clay, sand and silt that avoid the extremes of clay or sandy soils and are fertile, well-drained and easily worked. They can be clay-loam or sandy-loam depending on their predominant composition and cultivation characteristics.
- Peat soils: are mainly organic matter. They are usually very fertile and hold much moisture; they are seldom found in gardens.
- Chalky or lime-rich soils: may be light or heavy but are largely made up of calcium carbonate and are very alkaline.
Grass requires good drainage, and sand is the fastest-draining type of soil there is. On the other hand, grass needs soil that is able to retain moisture, and that's a feature of clay.
Poor soil can include anything from moist, poorly-drained soil to dry, sandy soil. It may also include heavy clay soil and hard compacted soil.
Below are indicators of the weeds that tend to thrive in specific soil types:
Moss and algae tend to be very prominent in wet and damp soils as well as weeds like spotted spurge, knotweed, chickweed, crabgrass, ground ivy and violets.
