soil after tree removal
I have a double oak in my front yard that is being removed next week. The previous owners planted it or laid the driveway within two feet of each other, so I need to remove before it creates too much damage to the driveway. I am wanting to plant a flower garden (bulbs, knockout roses, herbs) in it's place, what do I need to do with the soil to prepare for planting? Do I just add some mulch and compost and give it a year to rest? Or do I add some garden or top soil so I can plant this year?
