if the soil is so bad to begin with -- chem or organic?
I've heard it said before that in a new yard, organic methods are less effective. Is there any truth to this?
Currently my new yard consist of heavy compacted clay with hardly any organic matter or topsoil. For a variety of reasons, I would like to garden as organically as possible. However, I've found this to be rather challenging given the poor soil condition. Would going chemical give my yard a better headstart, especially in terms of soil fertility and solving pest and disease problems? Thanks!
