Dead Soil (Vs) Life in the Soil

Ever take a walk through a forest and then think back to your garden so why is one growing in the other not soil see in the forest soil. There are some very important yet practically invisible populations that make the organic ecosystem what it is

Let’s take a moment to meet just two important ones

first is bacteria they act like tiny food storage banks for your plants so tiny up to thousand can fit inside the period at the end of the sentence they are the Earth's primary de-composers of organic matter locking up nutrients close to the plants roots that might otherwise leach out when the bacteria die those nutrients are released to the plant

A second key helper for plants is mycorrhiza this beneficial fungus lives symbiotically with the plants roots the roots give the carbon. The fungus needs to grow and the fungus transports water and nutrients beyond the reach of the roots

there's a problem though as humans we have a bad habit of unintentionally destroying everything around us including the populations within nature's fragile soil ecosystem so what well if soil is a plant's lifeblood dead soil creates real issues when the beneficial life in the soil that keeps harmful things in check is removed plant diseases and pests tend to proliferate not to mention dead soil holds less water and increases runoff this makes your watering efforts more expensive and less effective.

Bottom line a dead soil ecosystem equals more work for you so why not let the soil help do the work for you if you want your garden to look more alive and be less of a chore

Try these four things

1) Think organically consider building organic soils and use organic fertilizers as an alternative to synthetic chemicals.

2) The plants, insects and soil microbes in your area all grew up together so a good way to create a harmonious garden is to use plants that will fit in with the neighbors down below the soil.

3) It is recommended, five percent organic matter in the soil to promote microbe growth and improve soil structure.

4) Remember three inches saves 30% applying a three-inch layer of nutrient-rich organic material on top of your newly planted or amended garden beds can help keep up to 30% more water reducing water usage and saving money.

There is hope join these things into your own gardening and you'll attract important organisms repair the web of life in your soil and build a garden that makes the most use of nature's own beautiful systems.

The first step, therefore, to enrich the soil organically is to grow a variety of crops on the land and then plough the green matter back into the soil. Using this method it is possible to enrich the depleted soil in just two hundred days. Even land that has been depleted of all nutrients due to chemical farming can be resuscitated in this manner.By growing the following crops for 50-60 days and then ploughing them in-situ we add balanced nutrients and micro-nutrients to the land. The soil will become enriched in less than a year and micro-nutrient deficiency is eliminated.
