What do I do with my turf??
I live on my own on a hill in the middle of nowhere like H.S. Thompson. The place is about a 1/3 acre surrounded by industrial farmland. I have recently begun landscaping the garden and so I am digging in some places and depositing the soil in other places to make a nice interesting garden
I am very interested in growing veg and so I have a big compost heap going and now after 5 years it is producing a lot of good growing compost - there is access to a relatively large amount of manure from a neighbour's goats, although I have not used this yet... I am also trying to reclaim the excavated clay soil (very poor quality) by mixing it with a little compost and heaping it over rotting wood (any other suggestions would be appreciated!).
However, I am left with a big pile of very poor turf with no clue what to do with it. I assume that if I try to mix it with the rest of the excavated soil that I will just get a lot of weeds?
Any advice on how to treat my soil and turf? I prefer more organic methods but any suggestions welcome.
