How do I amend my dirt???
I just moved to one of the Houston suburbs. I have a brand new house with some of the ugliest landscaping I have ever seen. The builder just dropped some fill dirt in and threw in whatever plants he could find. I enjoy doing my own landscaping. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to add to make the dirt more usable. When I lived in Oklahoma, my landscaper recommended Back to Nature which was a cotton seed lint compost. It worked great. My landscaping looked awesome when I left. I'm a bit intimidated by all of the traffic here. I couldn't find a good source of BTN nearby. I'm not sure it is what I need anyway. What would you suggest to better prepare my flower beds?
