Improve Soil Using Manure

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Potential problems. Manures do contain salts, which can build up in your soil. Plants will struggle to grow in soils with high salt levels. If you live in an arid region, where soils tend to be high in salts, a soil test can determine if your soil has high levels of salts. If the levels are above 3 (mmhos/cm) then it is best not to use manure in your garden.
