Mulch for failing perennial bed

4 months ago

I put together my first bed this summer and it failed 😂 the soil is clayish? and possibly not well draining.

i’m letting things die down for now and added some black kow to help improve the soil.

my question is… what can i put down to improve the soil for spring? i have a ton leaves in fall that i can mulch, and our compost site offers free leaf mulch. I added about an inch or two of black Kow for starters.

its a pretty visible area so i‘m trying to keep it looking decent for our neighbors as well. I’ve added some garden fencing so i can pile up whatever i need.
