RAISED BEDS & CONTAINERS
Raised beds and large containers are a great alternative when working clay soils with poor drainage or sandy soils with excessive drainage. Raised beds and large containers also tend to warm up sooner offering gardeners a head start on the growing season. Till the native soil to a depth equal to the height of your selected bed (ex. till four inches deep if you want a four inch high bed). Mix Soil Mender Soil Mix with the native soil to make a 50/50 mix. One bag of Soil Mender Soil Mix covers twelve square feet one inch deep.
Raised Beds – Build a border around bed using landscaping timbers, crossties, blocks, hay, or some other medium that will keep soil in the raised bed. Fill the bed with Soil Mix or Soil Mender Raised Bed Mix and plant.
Containers – Fill the container with Soil Mix and plant
