Too much clay?
Hello everyone, hopefully someone can help, we are trying to create a small rock garden in the corner of our townhome lot, because it is a new subdivision the builders only use very small amount of top soil the rest is clay. We dug up a huge amount of clay and made a slope in the corner using the clay and surrounded the edge of the border with rocks. How do we proceed from here, is it okay to use the clay in the rock garden by adding sand and black earth soil or should we get rid of the clay. We do not know anything about rock gardens. what do we need to do before planting any plants. drainage, type of soil, sun or shade and so forth
thank you so much for your help,
