If you have never heard the term trenching your garden before, then you are in for a treat. This method of cultivation is best for doing some deep down garden preparation. By deep down, we are talking about going down about 50 inches into the ground, and mixing up the soil nutrients at that depth. For the most part, this is only necessary or useful when you will be planting plants that will require some deep roots. Luckily the process isn't that difficult, though it does require a lot of digging on your part.
How to trench.
Once you have finished cultivating the garden that you will be using, it is time to begin planting. As you are planting, make sure that you have a watering system in place as well. If at all possible, try to incorporate a drip system that will be near the roots. The best time to do that would be while you are refilling the trenches that you dug.
