Soil Experiment




Category: Gardening | Posted: Thu Jul 24, 2014 4:13 pm

I'm always up to trying something new in the garden. The pictures below show the steps taken to hopefully improve the soil. Basically, I dug a trench, put in a good layer of dry cow manure, wet it, chopped it up, put in a good layer of grass clippings, wet it again, covered it up with dirt and then added a layer of oak leaves.

It was a lot of work, but I'm sure the hard work will pay off.
