Garden Soil Prep & Lawn

20130416-192319.jpg

This is what I add to my soil in my garden:

* 1 bag 3.8 cubit feet Peat Moss
* 3 bags Utelite E Soil Builder
* 3 bags Oakdell Organic Compost
* 3 bags Gardner Bloome Soil Building Compost
* 1 bag Humate Soil Conditioner

I put this on in the Spring and again in the fall. I also add untreated grass clippings and fall leaves mulched from the lawn- mower in the fall. This has worked for my size of garden. You can find out more here Andersonsseedandgarden

I will be adding these amendments to our garden and rototill it in to the soil.

In our yard we have about 18,000 square feet of grass. We applied our pre-emergent on the lawn. May is usually when we put it on, we were a little early.
