Your best approach is to dig out the old plants, roots and all, before planting anything new. While you're digging in the soil, why not amend it with some compost? This organic matter will loosen the soil, add nutrients, and help regulate soil moisture. After you've dug out all the old plant debris, spread 3=4 inches of compost over the top and dig it in to a depth of 6-8 inches. Then level the soil and plant your new plants. Enjoy your new plants!
