I recently bought some soil from my local plant nursery. However, I noticed that the soil retains water too well. I suspect that the soil may have a rather high clay proportion that is retaining the water in the soil. When dry, it tends to lump into somewhat hard clumps of soil. When too wet, the soil tends to become "bouncy" when tapped a spade.

I did a simple mason jar test to determine the composition of the soil. I suspect that the bottom half is sand, and clay(?) on the top half with almost no silt (thin dark line between the two). Could anyone with more experience here verify my findings and also advice on how to improve the soil mixture?
