Yes, it is quite sandy where I live. It's southeast of San Antonio, so it's well away from the rockiness of the Hill Country, but not quite into the clay-based soil that are in other areas. In fact, due to all the sand in the soil, I don't have any mesquite growing on my property at all...it's primarily made up of live oaks, post oaks and hickory trees. Beautiful hardwood bottom areas for hunting...it's my little piece of paradise. The only two downsides of living in sandy soil...gophers are absolutely everywhere, and sand gets into everything, so all my family's shoes stay in the garage, so we don't track sand into the house.
