Free compost manure? What kind?
Hi everyone! I am in Noth OC. I have an established garden with awful clay soil planted with tropicals (more details if you click on my profile) I really need to improve the soil, and am looking for sources of FREE compost manure, from places like Norco and such...Now, poop is just poop or does it make a difference on what kind of poop? Horse, cow, rabbit, chicken or steer manure? Could you share a good source?
Also info on how much to add in, since the planters are established and planted close together, I can't really turn the soil, just add on top...2" or so? And then add mulch?
I've bought bagged compost before and ended up with a bunch of weeds... also bought bagged mulch and again, weeds...sigh! I have a fairily big lot so at this point I'm looking for a free sounce.
Thanks so much for the help,
