Last year, after moving to a new place with very hard, compacted soil, I added at least five truckloads of mulched wood/tree litter from arborists. They need a place to dump the "waste" or it just goes to the landfill. Just by adding this free organic material to the surface areas, I saw a large increase in the earthworm population by the end of last summer. And this spring, the soil is already much easier to work. I expect the soil to continue to improve with time but somebody else will reap the benefits as I have moved again.
Add organic matter and the earth worms population will increase.
When it's time to die, let us not discover that we have never lived . . .
