Preparing new garden bed
Hello all and thank you in advance for answering my questions....
I have a large area in my back yard where - last spring - we unfortunately had to get rid of 4 dead pine trees. This year I would like an island garden bed. I have never done anything like this before and don't know where to start. For instance, do I need to dig up oldroots? All I have done so far is spread grass clippings over area and sprayed roundup on weeds that pop up. I live in southern Ohio and have heavy clay soil.
I assume the soil will be pretty acidic from pines so I plan on hydrangeas and other plants that can tolerate that ( would welcome any suggestions on other plants ). Area get full sun all say.
Thanks again. Amy
