I have people in high, but not dry places…
As a dog, I am really smart, but I have a friend I like to call Professor Paul and this is his recommendation. “Soil moisture holding capacity is directly related to surfaces that water can adhere to and those surfaces are soil particles and organic matter. Anything you can do to add organic matter to your soil will benefit soil water holding capacity, it will help clay soils open up and drain better and sandy soils hold more moisture, not to mention all the good it does for microbes and soil nutrients. Sooo, incorporating organic matter and using mulches like compost, humus, and natural bark mulches, which add organic matter over time, can improve water retention, conserve water and benefit soil health, all of which will benefit your plants.”
Whew… that is a lot for my doggie brain to comprehend. But great information. Thank you Professor.
