    Test the soil, or take a soil sample to your local garden shop for testing. If it is acidic, an easy fix is to add powdered limestone or calcium carbonate, it'll neutralize the acidity. Add some in the Spring and some in the Fall.

    No flowers. This is a toxic waste site for a million years. Ha ha. No, but you will need to neutralize the soil with a lot of baking soda, compost or mulch, and topsoil, worked down into soil at least a foot. Why don't you do that, set an old table or chair or bench over the area, and use some big pots over the area this year? Depending on drainage, sunlight and weather where you live, it may be okay to plant bulbs late this fall or early spring.
    in 3-6 months the spot should be ready for what you want. Best wishes 😇

  • Soil is fine for flowers and shrubs. Till well and add in good compost and new fresh soil, then plant away and water well. I have 6 dogs in my tiny yard daily. If I worried every time someone took a pee, there would be nothing but bare dirt in the yard. I have grass, trees, plants, shrubs, vegetatles and herbs. Go for it and do not worry. All is well.
