What kind of soil do we have in this portion of North Texas?

We have Blackland Prairie soil in Collin and Denton counties. Our soil is a deep, dark-gray to black alkaline clay. You'll notice this clay soil is very sticky and in some areas rests above a layer of white rock called caliche shale. Caliche is a limestone material and is highly alkaline. Texas Pure Products are designed to work well with Blackland Prairie soil.  

Like any planting project, you'll want to make sure the plants you choose are suited for the soil acidity and amount of sunlight available. 

Happy Planting!
