This is a quick update on my gutter system. Because my gutters lack the ability to hold water long, I’ve decided to add some Peat Moss to my soil mix.┬áThe gutters are not very deep and so the soil drys out quickly, making watering a choir.

Peat Moss absorbs and holds water and nutrients longer

This soil mix contains:

3 parts sawdust
2 parts peat moss
1-2 part sand
1 part perlite

I mix my batch together depending how it looks and feels. Adding more of this, and a little of that. Make sure to keep the soil wet as you mix it and wear a mask.
