Color of Soil
Can I expect any change in the color of my clay soil? Can anyone give any personal account of how long a process it is to change the makeup of the soil? I am tired of messing around with Scotts chemicals and seeing substandard results and am all ready to go organic on my 2-year old lawn. Before discovering the logic presented on this forum I tried to take proper care of my tall fescue by watering deep and infrequently while adding "quality" chemical fertilizer at the recommended dates. All along I knew everything starts in the soil and I know now if I keep this up the soil will always look the same (dead). I put a batch of milorganite (20lbs/1K) on a couple weeks ago and plan to give the dirt some food (soy meal) in a couple days along with some tea from my newly crafted brewer (thanks Deuley!). I like knowing if I barrage it with organics it won't hurt anything and I like knowing what I'm doing might just help the soil. Anybody have any insight?
