starting a lawn

Vincent Laverty asked 14 years ago

im trying to figure out where to start a lawn. i have sprayed the lawn, dug it up, and turned it over. the soil doesnt look great, its very uneven with scattered stones. i have left it for 3weeks and any weeds are now gone. im stuck now on what to do. should i get more top soil and even it out that way or would that only bring in more weeds to the garden? or would i be better off getting peat moss and putting it in the areas that need a lift.

Grass will grow in any kind of soil, once it has enough nutrients, which can be added as general fertiliser at 100 g per square metre before sowing.

It is usually unnecessary to bring in soil, unless the soil is just subsoil and unless the level needs to be brought up.
