Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: Apply tool action

The apply tool action adds a quantity of material to a soil patch. The material can be anything that is contained within a soil amendment template - compost, lime, mulch, or sand, for example.

To apply a material to a soil patch, pick up a tool that has the apply action (like the bag) and click anywhere inside the soil patch. To change the amount of material applied, choose another value from the box on the garden window toolbar labeled amount.

Note that applying a material does not mix it into the soil. Some materials may wash away or evaporate if you do not mix them in, so it is a good idea to mix the soil after you apply an amendment, unless it is a mulch.

To undo applying an amendment, choose Undo from the garden window Edit menu.
