    I don't know if mud from the bottom of the lake would be good in your garden. What I do want to know is why you would consider moving mud from the bottom of a lake to your garden and how you would do it?! There are easier ways to get some garden dirt than that!

    I would have it tested to ensure there are no toxic material in the mud.

    Most dirt (mud) found at the bottom of water sources have been leached of any nutrients. It can also contain bacteria and other things that may harm your plants or stunt growth of plants. I wouldn’t recommend using it but if you do, please have it tested as the person before my comment suggested.

    No~ most mud/clay from the bottom of a river or pond is there to keep the water from escape from leakage. Clay soil is horrible in a garden. It has no nurturing compounds. My Dad dug it out of our yard and mixed a bunch of sand in to the garden to help cut up what he couldn’t dig out due to depth. Sending growing energy to you💚
