How to prepare soil for rock garden?
I've got a dry, sandy patch where nothing will grow... so I think I'm going to convert it to a rock garden. How should I amend the soil?
My dry patch is downhill from a pine forest, so tree roots are probably going to keep me from working the ground too deeply... I'm thinking about just throwing a mix of course sand, compost, and permatill directly on the ground.
Would this suffice for succulents such as sedum, sempervivum, and delosperma (ice plants)?
