Water Retention in Soil



Increasing your soil's organic material is beneficial in many ways besides just increasing it's water retention capabilities, but we'll get to that in another post. An easy way to help your soil hold water is by adding organic material when cultivating the area. Some examples of organic materials that help in water retention are: composted manure, leaf mold, shredded leaves and compost. Work any of these materials in your soil and you'll spend less time watering your plants in the summer. For those of you that are restricted from watering plants and lawns during droughts, you can have peace of mind that your plants will hold on until you can get them some more water. And don't forget to mulch your plants as an added measure.
