Claymend...Too good to be true?
Calling all master gardners!
Has anyone tried Claymend? My pops and I have been landscaping the yard, which is nothing but clay after 6 inches. We've been amending the 'soil' with compost, top soil, and builder's sand to a depth of about 1.5-2 ft (we've had a long-standing debate as to the depth we should dig -he thinks it should be a foot, but I'm afraid if we do that we'll end up digging the perennials back up due to poor growth once the roots hit the clay). It would be nice to throw something on top of the soil and be done with it - I might actually feel like we're accomplished something, but this seems too easy. Or, would it be good to apply it when we dig and mix the other stuff in? I've posted photos to give you an idea of the kinds of perennials we've been planting at a snail's pace.
Help me in my quest to be lazy!
