    Yes, leaves and manure/hay can make excellent compost. You'll know if it's ready to use if you can grab a couple of handfuls and it falls apart, like fine topsoil. You shouldn't be able to recognize what it was (leaves, grass, hay, etc.)and it will have a nice, earthy smell. Home Depot, Lowe's, K-mart, etc. all sell bags of compost if you need to get some right away.

    Jodi, not really what I had in mind. I can aeravate concrete and it still will not hold water, add clay and it still will not hold water, spray it with any chemical you want and nothing...there are certain things that naturally hold water and nutrients.

    You are fast too! Your location still says "At my desk". Well no frickin' duh. I am at my desk too. Actually, just to be different, i think i will put my monitor and keypad in the floor and i will change the "Dresden, TN" to "In my floor". Ask kirby where you can get that pile of sand to solve your soil problems.:dizzy:

    Thanks for the back up, ric. Yes, concrete then aerate. Wait a couple of weeks then fert. Yep, that'll do it. Make it 46-0-0. you'll see immediate results.
