Q.

soil

Zone lewisville texas | paz1965 added on April 30, 2015 | Answered

I'm new to gardening. I made an 8 ft by 8 ft above ground box. I filled it with ten 40 lb bags of topsoil and added 6 bags of gardening soil, 40 lbs each. I mixed them together. Am I ready to plant my garden or are there some other steps that I need to take?

Before planting, I would recommend working the soil with compost so that it is rich with organic matter.
