Abstract
A soil is composed primarily of minerals which are produced from parent material that is weathered or broken into small pieces. Plants and animals have important roles to play in soil. Both plants and animals change the composition and structure of soil in many different ways. Plants with roots obtain nutrients and moisture from soil through their roots. Soils are characterised by their physical, chemical and biological properties. In addition, soils are good materials used in engineering projects .The phenomenon of soil water repellency, starting from the fundamental principals of water transport and storage in soil. Soil water repellency is a reduction in the rate of wetting and retention of water in soil caused by the presence of hydrophobic coatings on soil particles. The complexity of testing required for a particular project may range from a simple moisture content determination to sophisticated triaxial strength testing. A laboratory test program be well-planned to optimize the test data for design and construction.
