Very rich floodplain soils occur along the larger streams. Vast areas of unreclaimable desert exist in the west and south-east.
Alluvial deposits brought down by mountain streams, and strips of floodplain along larger streams on the plains are very fertile and well repay irrigation.
In the floodplain there are still areas of enclosed meadow pasture.
The drift geology map for the LCA also highlights the extensive alluvial deposits associated with the present-day floodplain of the lagan.
A small area of grazed floodplain grassland with shallow ponds occurs by the River Clyde, southeast of Barons Haugh.
