Getting Started with Bad Soil
So every year I say I want a garden but by the time I figure things out it's summer. Hey look at that its almost summer time. Anyway Hubby and I decieded that this summer we would do all the prep and setup so that come spring we just have to plant.
My soil is bassicaly sod laid over rock. I have almost no topsoil, lots of rock and clay. And every spring when it rains my backyard turns into a swamp. The water level is te ground surface. I have a slope in the yard and we plan to build on the slope to help make sure our boxes dont get flooded. So one side will be much higher than the other.
Now Once I put the boxes down do I need to remove the sod or can I just put the mix on top of the sod? I read several sites where they talked about removing the sod, but I'm thinking that could be a long days work to get an area 4 ft by 8ft.
Any advice would be apreciated.
