Q.You Said An Arborvitae Needs Good Grainage
Hi there, I am currently planting a few Arborvitae in my yard!! First house ever bought!! I put two in the back where they receive great sun. Putting two out front. All day sun. My question has to do with the soil. You guys said the soil needs a lot of aeration. The soil here looks great but also looks like it would become mud easily. I have perlite and/or vermiculite that I can add or just put alot of small rocks or pieces of terra cotta. I have tons of that. Please let me know what you think. Thank you, Nancy Minihane

That can help, but I would also add earthworms and compost. They will help break everything down and aerate the soil.
One more thing. I will remove it this time, but PLEASE DO NOT put your personal information out to the public.
