Prepare Soil in the Fall for a Healthy Spring Garden

Posted on 09/10/2012 by Parker Andes

When a hint of autumn chill is in the air, gardening may be the last thing on your to-do list. However, fall is the perfect time for amending and rebuilding healthy soil eco-systems.

Working in Your Fall Garden

In most urban and suburban neighborhoods, the top-soil has been removed. By amending your soil in the fall, you lay the foundation for healthy plants and gardens.

Begin by adding organic materials to the soil. This gives Mother Nature a helping hand and prepares your soil for spring growth. Organic materials are naturally acidic and help break down concentrated minerals in the soil. The minerals in turn support and encourage winter root growth and provide a nutrient boost in the spring.
