Question: What can I add to my soil to improve it?

Answer: Whether you’re dealing with a sandy soil or a clay, the answer is the same. Organic matter will help sandy soils hold moisture and nutrients when they might otherwise leach out of the root zone. That same organic matter will help loosen tight clay soils so water and fertilizer can penetrate more readily. Best sources of organic matter include brown Canadian peat moss, rotted manure, compost and shredded bark mulch.
