Hello, despite all the rain we've had of late, I went out yesterday to dig a hole for a new shrub and the ground was completely dry. We've had days and days of heavy rain lately, I've no idea where it is all going if it isn't going down into the soil. Once I dug up the grass (which was wet), just below that by about 2 or 3 inches, the ground was so dry and compacted I struggled to dig the hole. This is in an 'untouched' area of my lawn that has been mowed for years but never dug. I finally got the hole dug and shrub planted and gave it all a good soaking, but I'm concerned that the roots will not find enough water as the plant grows because the ground seems so compacted and dry. What can I do to help the shrub and my lawn? Thanks.
