how deep to dig?

HHassist's picture

We are digging the clay soil out of our new front flower bed that we cut. What is the proper depth to dig before putting new soil in? We won't have any large shrubs going in...probably flowers, grasses and maybe some low growing shrubs.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks...we were thinking we had to dig off at least 18" of the clay soil before filling it with new topsoil. My dh will be happy he doesn't have that much work!
