This soil sticks to your shoes and your working tools and seems to be more challenging to garden with it than any other type of soil. But even with all its disadvantages, clay soil has its benefits. If your garden is made up of clay soil, don’t despair; clay has many benefits that it offers.

– Clay is smooth to touch especially when rubbed between the finger and the thumb.
