About modifying a soil's content.
Soil amendments are any additives which are added to a soil to change its characteristics. Amendments can include (but are not limited to):
- Rock chips
- Bark chips
Amendments can change the acidity (pH), water-holding ability, drainage, nutritional content, and inoculate against some diseases.
Use this tag for all questions where a general soil amendment tag is appropriate. Questions about specific amendments should use the specific tag for the amendment.
