Raised bed soil compacted: Where did I go wrong?

14 years ago

I'm in the process of sprucing up my one-year-old raised beds for the Fall, and I've noticed that they have sunk quite a bit. I was planning to add more of the same to the beds, but I'm starting to wonder if I need to change my mix.

The beds are composed of a 50/50 mix of bagged compost and bagged topsoil.

I am in south Florida and I wonder if I don't have the right mix for the rainy season and that the soil is/ will be too heavy.

Any thoughts? Ideas for good mixes?

Thanks so much!
