Building Healthy Garden Soil
Soil is truly the backbone of your garden. It holds everything together, nourishing the roots of your grass and plants and supporting the life of your garden. Most people aren’t naturally blessed with perfectly balanced, good-quality soil in their gardens. Soil amendments can help us build and maintain good garden soil to support the healthy, flourishing gardens we long for.
While loamy soil is considered ideal for most plants, the definition of good soil really depends on what you’re trying to grow. Each soil type, from sand to silt to clay, serves a purpose. It’s important to consider the individual needs of your garden before changing the composition or content of your soil. When you do figure out what kind of challenges your landscape faces, you can count on amendments to correct those issues. Some common problems include inadequate drainage, nutrient deficiencies or pH imbalances.
Adding organic matter and fertilizers, like compost, is almost always a good idea for promoting a healthy garden. Not only does it improve drainage in heavier soils, but it feeds the ground with plenty of nutrients and beneficial microorganisms. Clay, vermiculite, and shredded bark work in the opposite manner, providing weight and bulk to soils with poor water retention, like sand and chalk. Other products, like lime and sphagnum peat help to raise or lower the pH of your garden soil, respectively.
Benefits of Organic Practices
There are plenty of options when it comes to fertilization products for your garden, but they fall under one of two categories: organic vs. synthetic. Organic products are derived from natural, biological matter that was a living organism at one point or another. Synthetic fertilizers are manufactured using man-made, inorganic products and chemicals. While both types of fertilizers get the job done, organic practices are much better for your garden in the long run.
Synthetic fertilizers add a quick shot of energy and nutrients for your plants, helping them grow fast and furious now. Organic fertilizers may not provide you with those immediate results, but their mechanism is to nourish the soil, not just the plants. These products enrich the ground with beneficial microorganisms that help to create and maintain fertile soils. Aside from fertilizers, there are many other organic products that work to correct soil issues naturally and chemical-free, so you can have a happy, healthy, and sustainable garden.
