The Q&A Archives: watering level in soil

Question: after watering plants and ground, I notice that the water has only reached the surface of the ground & not further down.

Answer: You may need to apply water slowly for a longer period of time so it can soak down into the soil. That's just a quick fix, though. For real improvement you'll need to incorporate some organic matter to help loosen your soil and help it absorb more moisture.
