The following websites give information on how to understand and treat soil compaction. Soil compaction is worse in some soils such as clay. It can get very technical but the solutions are what may interest you. Adding organic compost is a common solution. It breaks down the soil by adding microbes and making air spaces in the soil. This makes the soil able to hold more nutrients and water. It can help return your soil to its previous condition.
