Spring Soil: Here’s How to Prepare for Spring 2023!

Mar 23, 2023 | Landscape Supply, Uncategorized

Spring is a wonderful time of year for gardeners, as it signifies the beginning of the growing season. However, to ensure a successful garden, it’s crucial to prepare your spring soil. By taking the time to properly prepare your spring soil, you can help your plants thrive throughout the season. Here are some tips to get your soil ready for spring.

Test Your Spring Soil

The first step in preparing your soil is to test it. This will help you determine the pH level, nutrient levels, and texture of your soil.

You can purchase a soil testing kit at your local garden center or have a professional soil test done. Once you know the status of your soil, you can take steps to improve it.

Add Organic Matter

Adding organic matter to your spring soil is an excellent way to improve its overall health. Organic matter can include compost, manure, or leaf mold. These materials add essential nutrients to the soil and can help improve soil structure.

Spread a layer of organic matter over your garden bed. Then, use a garden fork or tiller to work it into the soil.

Amend Soil pH

If your spring soil pH is too low or too high, it can negatively impact plant growth. Most plants prefer a pH between 6.0 and 7.0.

If your soil is too acidic, add lime to raise the pH. If your soil is too alkaline, add sulfur to lower the pH.

Add Mulch

Mulching your garden beds is an excellent way to keep your soil healthy. Mulch helps regulate soil temperature, conserve moisture, and suppress weed growth. It also helps break down organic matter, which adds nutrients to the soil. Apply a layer of mulch around your plants and over the soil surface.

Fertilize Your Spring Soil

Finally, fertilize your spring soil to give your plants the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. Use a slow-release fertilizer that will release nutrients over time, rather than all at once. This will ensure your plants receive a steady supply of nutrients throughout the growing season.
