Planting in Florida clay

16 years ago

I am finding it very difficult to grow anything in my yard. This is a new-construction area and the dirt from the pond was dumped on my lot. The landscaper eventually planted a weeping willow where he tried to put a crape myrtle...and it is thriving because it sits in a "bowl", usually full of water, especially during rainy season. I'd like to put some color and some trees on the property.

Is there a difference between Georgia clay and Florida clay? My friend who moved there seems able to grow things that fail here even if I follow the same steps.
