Creating a Living Soil
Creating a Healthy Living Soil
This is probably your number one priority, since your plants will do so much better once you have this in place. Your garden is a natural system, so it will create a living soil on its own, but only if you have 100 years to spare! The heartening thing about this is that all you have to do is:
- Break up any really badly compacted areas of ground by lightly forking it over
- Apply either compost or compost tea
- Cover the soil in mulch at a depth of 2” – 4”
- Water once per week
If you were to do this you would have active, living soil within 2-3 months.
