What does it mean when they say the soil is saturated?

    They mean that all of the space between the grains that make up soil are filled with water. When soil gets saturated, it cannot hold any more water. If the grains in soil are tightly packed, it won’t be able to hold as much water because there aren’t as many holes for the water to get into. If the grains in soil are loosely packed, the soil can hold more water because there’s more space for the water to be.
