Clay is nutrient rich but is made up of very small particles which result in poor drainage. You can improve the oxygen-carrying capacity of your heavy clay soil by tilling in a soil amendment like compost. Here is a link to some information from CSU Extension about choosing a soil amendment and rates of application: https://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/yard-garden/choosing-a-soil-amendment/
