Have a Beautiful Garden this Summer: Garden Soil Preparation Tips for Planting a Gorgeous Garden

Is your garden already in full bloom and looking good for summer? If it’s not, it’s not too late to start! Beginner gardeners often make the same mistake – they use poor quality soil that lacks nutrients or soil that is simply too thin to nourish and protect new plants. Before you can get started with any planting, make sure that you prepare the garden soil properly. Loosen all soil and ensure that it is able to offer your plants what they will need. If the soil is not of a good quality, you will need to buy some garden soil or chat to a supplier about acquiring some added nutrients to increase your soil’s fertility, such as phosphorous, calcium and potassium.

Here are some soil preparation tips:

  • Dig deep or mound the soil up according to the type of plants you are incorporating. Most plants and seedlings will be happy with a deep foundation filled with healthy garden soil. However, if you are growing plants with substantial root systems, such as in the case of potatoes or carrots, you can mound the soil above the ground to make the conditions more suitable for the plants.


  • Mix good quality and nutritious garden soil into your garden beds. Most soil found in our gardens can do with a bit of a pep-up these days. Adding healthy garden soil will certainly increase your plants chances at a healthy existence.
  • Mix in some nutrients and organic matter. As mentioned before, nutrients such as calcium, potassium and phosphorous can add great value to your garden soil. Adding organic matter such as manure and compost can also revive the texture of your soil and more nutrients too.

Creating a beautiful garden setting can take a bit of time and effort. At Quicksand, we like to make the task simpler and easier for our clients. We present the market with quality garden soil, which can be delivered to your premises. We also sell organic matter and extra nutrients.

Deciding on the best course of action to transform your soil to a healthy state will be greatly assisted by knowing what type of soil you have. Determine whether your soil is sandy, silt, clay or loam. Some soils are better suited to growing plants and crops than others, so it is best to gather some advice from the professionals in the industry.
