Song & Lyrics by Rick Charette
Yes, we had rain!
I find it so amazing that soil just 30 miles apart can be so totally different. At our original house the soil, uh, if you could call it that, was very sandy. Here we have gumbo clay. Even in the worst rain storms or snow run off, the paddock the boys used to have would be firm and drained, if not dry. Here.... well, it appears we have a different story!
Since all of this was grass a few days ago, I'm wondering if it will drain better once it has a chance to be compacted by the boys' little feet. It is on a slight slope, so water does have a chance to leave the area.
Do any of you have similar footing? Do you have suggestions? Should we invest in some decomposed granite?!
