I would start off by building up that bed with the perennial flower in it with mulched up leaves from the surrounding trees and some manure. Next spring, I would add some annual and perennial flowers to the bed (I'm a huge fan of Dahlia's and Dyalilies as well as lillies but, whatver suits your fancy). Anyway, number one, build up that soil.

You are more than welcome. Build up the soil in your other beds as well. And be sure to read the organic lawn care thread in the organic forum.
