Planting Shrubs/Bushes

Anonymous added on June 22, 2012 | Answered

I don't know much about gardening in general, but I really want to give it a try. The house I currently live in has nothing in the front yard but weeds, rocks, a bunch of succulents, and a small cluster of tulips that come up every spring. The soil looks a bit dry in a few places, but I haven't actually touched it, so I could be wrong. With the amount of weeds and small trees that have been growing there, I'm guessing it's ok. I want to plant a few boxwood shrubs, a smoke bush, and a few other leafy plants and flowers there. So my question is, after weeding the area and moving the large rocks, what should my next step be? Should I do anything to the soil, and if so, exactly how do I go about doing it?
