The Importance of Healthy Soil

Healthy soil is living soil, and it provides a variety of benefits that mere "dirt" can never match. Healthy soil is full of fungi, bacteria, nutrients, and water that are needed to keep plants thriving. If your soil is healthy it can reduce or even eliminate your need for added water and fertilizer. It even leads to stronger plants that need less help from pesticides to fight off disease and pests.
