Very sandy soil

Is soil that is sandy, alkaline or acidic generally?

Thanks for writing. There's no general rule for the pH of sandy soil.... The sand content in the soil doesn't usually affect its pH; the pH is more influenced by the types of minerals in the soil, its organic matter content, and other factors.
