San Diego Select Garden Soil may be applied to existing native soil by rotor-tilling a 2 inch layer to 2 to 4 inches into the existing soil. (This rotor-tilled layer is important as it establishes a transition zone.) A final layer of 4 to 6 inches may then be applied to the rotor-tilled surface. It may also be applied directly into ex-cavated areas. A pre-plant fertilizer is recommended.. Irrigate deeply initially and then moderately after-wards.
