Thanks for your question about soil improvement. Your question submission doesn't indicate where you're from, but one of the universal 'answers' to improving soil is to add organic material! Whether it's clay or sand, adding composted organic material is the best answer! It provides nutrients to the plants, adds micro (small) and macro (large) pores (spaces for air and water to help the soil 'live) It adds material that microbes (very important living 'things' such as bacteria, fungi and other things you can't see but which provide important functions) really 'live' for!

Here's a link to a great (small) article on improving soils. I hope it's helpful!
