Soil & land

Soil test : -According to the ancient Indian Vastu Specialist, dig a 2’x2’x2′ hole and then fill it up again. If some soil left over after filling, the land is good. If there is no soil left after filling up, it is average. If the hole is not fully filled, it is not good. This is the test to determine the soil’s natural moisture, density and aeration. And other way you can check it then dig a 2’x2’x2′ hole and fill it with water. If the time taken to absorb the water is more than an hour, it is good.
