"Ground Rules for Healthy Soil." - By following these suggestions, gardeners can build healthier soil that will support a lush, picture-perfect garden. Here are his suggestions:

Dig it ** Try digging up a small patch of earth with a trowel. If the tool does not penetrate the ground easily, the soil is compacted. Compaction is caused by the retention of salt, which strips the soil of beneficial, essential nutrients. Healthy soil is loose, like cake mix.

Pull it ** If you pull up a small patch of grass and the roots come up easily, your soil is in trouble. Healthy soil allows roots to penetrate down deep into the ground and hold on tightly. A storage "pantry" is created underground, allowing the roots to easily draw water, nutrients and vitamins on demand.

Test it ** Do the "Earthworm Test." Dig up a scoop of earth; if you don't see any worms, your soil needs help. Healthy soil is full of earthworms, bugs and other beneficial organisms that work the soil and deliver water and food to plants.

Work it ** Work with Mother Nature. Use a product such as compost tea or a liquid soil aerator monthly until the soil is restored. Then use it regularly in spring and fall to maintain healthy soil.

nice i just finish making my 2 batch of aerated tea compost i have made already one special formula for st,grass works only in 15 days new shoots, ticker grass, to the point that i went to mow one of my customers i spray the front lawn after 15 days i went back to mow it make me think twice if mow on the 15 crazy it was 8 inches high men in exited about this , in creating a new batch only bermuda grass.
