      For broad sweeps, the 'other' soil types are sand and rock. Obviously 
there are many gradations of all of them. The A.B.Chance Co. "Encyclopedia of 
Anchoring" (573-682-5521) has nine classifications of soil. They have 
machines that drill into the soil and perform pull tests so this is obviously 
something that is out of the scope of an amateur determination.

      My best advice is to (what else?) do what the manufacturer says and if 
in doubt, over-engineer where possible.
