High pH Level in Soil

Anonymous added on January 10, 2014 | Answered

I'm just starting out. What will I need to put in my soil besides the fertilizer? Cost of sprinkler system for 2,000 to 3,000 feet? Anything else I would need?

I would consider adding some kind of organic material to help with retention of water and fertilizer. Peat, compost and composted manure are the typical additives for this purpose. Organic material also helps with make the soil 'softer' so that plants have an easier time of growing their roots, which results in a bigger, healthier plant faster.
