Thanks for the tip! I was thinking about the soil - The land is by the beach and there's a high quantity of sand in the soil, as well as salt in the air. I'd like to learn how to get the soil to a good level, and design to protect the plants from too much salty wind, creating good foundations for a productive permaculture garden. Any ideas on where to get started?
