The Q&A Archives: Drainage and Wind

Question: I live in the desert (93536) where the soil is like clay. I was told to try gypsum to help enable the soil to drain. I planted a peach tree with mulch but It appears to be drying out despite my heavy watering. Should I build a raised bed for that tree, and the Mexican avocado that I'm afraid to plant? Also it does get REALLY windy, can you suggest any trees good to block wind?
