In last weeks blog, we discussed how you could effectively assess what type of soil you have in your yard, now knowing that, here are some ways to improve your soil using natural methods and additional products.
Here’s what to add to your soil when…
Your Soil Is Too Heavy
Mixing compost, manure, peat moss, vermiculite, gypsum, sand, or green sand to your heavy soils like clay will help break the soil up and allow it to breathe.
Your Soil Needs Improved Drainage
Mixing in gypsum, sand, or perlite to soil that is having a hard time releasing excess moisture will aid in allowing the soil to drain better.
Your Soil Needs To Absorb & Retain Moisture
Manure, peat moss, vermiculite, and greensand are all excellent addition to add to soil that needs a little extra help absorbing and retaining moisture.
