Best way to retain soil moisture?
What is the best way to retain soil moisture? For the last two year I try mixing my red clay soil with top soil and even mulch. But when it stop raining for a week, it will get really dry. I found that dry leave work the best. I have also try wood chip but those attract more bug. So what is the inexpensive way to keep the garden from drying up? and yes pea moss cost a lot.
