How to make flower bed around my lawn at the back of home
I have a relatively big lawn on the back of my home and I am removing grass and planting different plants (flowers and vegetables) besides the fence encircling my lawn. It rained a lot yesterday and in the evening when I dig out the soil near the fence to put a plant, the soil at the bottom which is the native soil and which is clay colored)was too watery ( if properly mixed it could be made as a paste), Top 6 inches or so is the garden soil which I bought from store. Now my question is that should I put more soil in the flower bed so that it is higher than the rest of the lawn. Perhaps that would help prevent lot of rain water going into the flower bed.
I think too much water during lot of rain might be harmful for the growth of plants. thanks
