We have a small garden, not interested in sub soiling that, I just run the middle buster through it and then till it up.
What I have is about 2 open acres in the back of my property, that's just normal grass that I mow. Within that 2 acres, is a good size low spot that collects alot of the run off water from my property, and the tillable field surrounding me. At times, it has looked like a small pond back there, and after heavy rains, remains. At one point in time, before me, it was part of the tillable acreage surrounding my property as it is now, so i'me sure there is a hard pan layer under the top soil. I don't currently have any live stock. In the future we plan to put in alot of trees back there, one for property value and two, to liven the place up some (it's bare, we only have trees on the front half of the property. Plus side, then I won't have to mow as much square footage.
Is it worth subsoiling the area to get the water to drain better? Will that help trees get a better bite into the soil? We get some extreme wind around here and new trees can struggle get a foot hold before the wind takes them out.
Opine please. I've never been down this road before.
