It’s important that your soil has the right balance of nutrients and pH levels otherwise things just won’t grow as well as they could. Soil testing kits are available at most garden centers, and they’re easy to use.
Compost is a mixture of decaying organic matter, like leaves and grass clippings. It’s great for improving the soil in your garden because it provides nutrients for plants and helps loosen compacted dirt.
Not only does it prevent soil erosion, but it also facilitates a great habitat for microorganisms to grow which is great for the soil’s nutrient ecosystem.
You could also go with some good-quality mulch. Mulches are used as a weed suppressant and an insulating blanket to protect the soil from frost.
