Soil Amendments Added

Here is a look at all of the amendments added to the soil surface. My turf grass cover crop did not do so well as it was seeded last year during an extended heat wave, but there was at least some roots established.

After this image the soil was tilled and then a hydrogen peroxide drench was completed. TerraClean 5.0 was used at a rate of 3 gallons of concentrate (27% Hydrogen Peroxide and 5% Peroxyacetic Acid) into 275 gallons of water. This was applied to moist soil and over about 1,100sq.ft. Two days after this TerraGrow (beneficial microbes) were added to the same area. This was then covered with weed block to help prevent weeds from growing since (ideally) this will be a warm environment.
