Soil degradation is one of the hot news topics in environmental sciences at the moment. This is a global problem but it's not something that is likely to affect well-managed green spaces here in the UK. A smart approach to soil is what gardeners and groundskeepers really need according to keep their green spaces healthy, according to soil experts Soil Online.

Nutrients can be washed out of soil that is not managed properly, but this is not the only issue at hand. Farmers and gardeners are more likely to face the problem of disease. This report on the Farming UK website gives plenty of insight into the growth and spread of soil pest and disease that effect wet soils.

However, there is also a danger of soils drying out and being affected by persistent weeds. Visitors to will currently find an excellent range of soils for different applications in gardens and other green spaces, both domestic and commercial, alongside barks that help to protect the integrity of the soil.

Replacing soil is a fantastic way of restoring the health of lawns and borders and spring months represent the ideal time to get started because this is traditionally a time when gardeners can rely on frosty conditions disappearing, giving lawns time to bed in and giving flowers and border plants the right conditions in which to thrive.
