Well salt affected, you need a raised bed. Or just start adding manure (horse manure is best for this). Just till it in. If you are worried about seeds in the poop, rake out the manure, put down black plastic over it. This will heat it up and let the seeds germinate. Then remove the plastic and let a good frost kill the seedlings.
Till the manure in and begin anew.
Composting leaves, coffee grinds and sulphur will help over-alkaline soil.
to make it from 7.5 to 6.5 add 12.5 pounds of sulphur to 1000sq foot OR 25 pounds of aluminum sulfate for same results.
to change it from 8 to 6.5
Sulphur 20 pounds
or 40 for aluminum sulfate
Hope this helps!
