Confused about my soil- topsoil and deeper soil
My soil on the surface-- what you would get after digging down 3-4 ft is pretty much: first 2 ft are neutral to slightly acid well drained loam. Deeper is clay with loam, after that changes with clay, but I am not clear on what else, but when we had a well, we had to use water softening salt. I wonder, does that mean that under my clay and loam neutral soil there is limestone. Before we started getting public water, we had to use water softener and still we had white limestone looking crap on our sink and tub fixtures. I have heard that in my area in Pa there are no mentionable limestone outcrops or underground mounds. But if that is true why are some of us fighting lime in our homes from making our water build up minerals and ruin our appliances. I no longer have problems, we have public water, but a friend of mine still has to deal with this crap.
