The best thing you can do to your garden is prepare it for the winter weather. Thus, making sure that all the water infiltrating the soil won’t wash away the nutrients and vital minerals needed for plants to survive.
Spring is the best season to start preparing your garden.
The soil must have the proper density, as to allow water and nutriments to drain easily. If there is too much water, the plants will not grow and drown. The nutrients won’t reach the plant. This is why you need to have a soil with the right density so that enough air can enter the soil and balance the needs of the plants.
Depending on what you want to plant, the soil must be prepared. If you are going to plant vegetables, the soil must be denser, to allow water to remain in it. Also, you might need to use a special type of soil and even fertilizer, depending on what you plant. Fertilizer bought from a local farmer is the perfect deal, if made in spring time. On the other hand, if it is late spring, the farmer might have trouble trying to get the black dirt to you because of road restrictions.
