Preparing clay soil for grass seed

by dennew55 » Tue May 25, 2021 10:51 am

What is the best process to prepare the soil for grass seed? The soil area is clay and is compacted due to previously having pavement. Should I turn the soil over forking in compost and then add a small layer of topsoil and sow grass seed?

Hi dennew55
The more soil you add and the deeper you dig it in the better. If you only add a thin layer your lawn will be susceptible to dry periods. Regards S
