Sand is a granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles, while soil is a mixture of organic matter, minerals, gases, liquids, and organisms that together support life.
Sand vs. Soil

Key Differences

Sand is primarily composed of finely fragmented rocks and mineral particles. Its main constituents include silica, calcium carbonate, and small amounts of other minerals. Soil, on the other hand, is a complex mixture that includes minerals, organic matter, water, air, and microorganisms. It has a more varied composition compared to sand.

The texture of sand is coarse and gritty, as it consists of larger particles. Sand particles are typically round and have spaces between them, which allows for good drainage. Soil texture varies significantly depending on the proportion of its components - sand, silt, and clay. Soil can be loose and friable, or dense and compact, influencing its ability to hold water and nutrients.

Sand has a low capacity to retain water due to the large size of its particles and the considerable spaces between them. Conversely, soil can retain water more effectively, especially if it has a higher content of smaller particles like silt and clay. This characteristic of soil is crucial for plant growth.

Sand is generally poor in nutrients as it lacks organic matter. It is not conducive to plant growth unless mixed with soil or organic material. Soil, in contrast, is rich in nutrients and organic matter, making it fertile and supportive of plant life.

Sand plays a significant role in certain ecosystems, such as beaches and deserts, providing habitat for specific plants and animals. Soil is fundamental to most terrestrial ecosystems. It supports plant growth, which in turn sustains animal life, and is a key component in the cycling of nutrients.
