I have 5 acres of land in the interior of BC, and it was long ago logged to make way for a dairy farm. Some of the property is more grassy than others, and resists the drought better. It's all drying up though. My vision for the land is being able to keep it greener, for longer. Especially as the threat of forest fires seems to be growing. What are some good ways I can improve the quality of a few acres of land over time? I was thinking of scattering a lot of clover seeds in the spring, and maybe planting some more trees, but I'm not sure how many would be realistic on 3-5 acres. A portion of the land sees a lot of runoff in the spring, so I was also thinking of making a big pond in that area. Unfortunately that spot is a corner of the property furthest from everything else. Is it worth making a more centralized pond and just letting it fill with snow and rain? What does making a big pond reasonably cost? Lots of questions there...thanks in advance!
