What you'll need
Clay can be a real pain to dig in. Whether its footers for a backyard deck or simply potted plants, this is a great way to make it easier.
1 – Mark your hole
2 – Remove the top layer of clay from the marked area
3 – Drill small holes throughout the marked area
Drill as deep as you possibly can.
