In this book, professional, international garden designer, Rachel Mathews, from Successful Garden Design, will share over twenty year's experience as a designer and landscaping contracts manager. She will give you the low down on the main things you need to know BEFORE you landscape your garden.

Chapter Two - All About Soil

Soil is one of the most important aspects of gardening. Many people who begin gardening think they can just put a plant into the ground, and it will grow, but depending on your yard's soil type, it'll have some trouble. Certain vegetables like it more acidic than others, and if you have too much clay, your soil will be like suffocating cement to the roots of your plants. Of course, too much humus and your plants will wash away the next time it rains.

Soil Types

So what's the best soil type for the different types of gardens?

Soil Type for In-Ground and Raised Gardens

Organic soil has a lot of humus, holds moisture, drains well, and is filled with air, which your plants need. It also has plenty of nutrients for your plants' roots, foliage, and fruit to grow. It has many different organisms in it that help keep the soil healthy, and the proper pH is maintained.

Garden soil is the best type of soil to purchase if you need to add some to your in-ground garden or if you need some to fill your garden boxes. But if you want to try out your own soil, then you need to determine its health.

To find out how to determine the health of your soil and set your garden up for success, add this to your cart!
