Sawdust as soil treatment?
I've got an area that's less than a half acre, but is nothing much more than red rock gravel. Grows a great crop of fist sized stones, but not a lot else. Tried some corn this year just to see what would happen and as expected, basically nothing did.
So, for next year .....
Planning on tilling in grass clippings, leaves, wood chips, small brush and pretty much any other organic material I can find. That brings me to the sawdust and the giant pile at the sawmill not too far down the road that they sell cheap by the truck or trailer load.
Is it a horrible idea?
