Building, Preparing & Amending Bed for Proper Plant & Tree Installation

Tilling and amending soil (as needed) is the most important part of the landscape technique, and essential when developing landscape beds for ornamental plants and planting trees. Clay soil needs enough aeration. In sandy soil, providing enough water is an issue. Poorly drained soils, soil texture and its pH (acidity or alkalinity) are factors that need to be considered. Bed preparation is key when providing plants and trees with the resources they need to thrive. Water and oxygen are required for plant growth and bed preparation provides the needed balance between the two.
