  1. gumbo soil

    Gumbo soil refers to a heavy clay soil that is found predominantly in the Southern United States. This soil type becomes extremely sticky and almost unworkable when wet, and dries into a hard, concrete-like substance when dry. Because of its poor drainage and aeration, gumbo soil can be challenging for farming and construction. It's typically rich in nutrients but its physical characteristics make it challenging for plant roots to penetrate and access those nutrients.
