Roll don't till?
I've been reading posts and gearing up for planting a new lawn, but I have some final prep work to do.
I have a spec home and will be starting a new lawn. Right now the dirt is pretty soft when I walk on it, so I'm thinking I need to firm it up a bit more. The lawn was graded last summer and settled a bit (mostly where the rain runoff goes), but other than that it seems pretty solid.
Right now I'm spraying the remaining weeds and then planning on raking and getting rid of them.
Since it is so soft, after reading a lot on here, I think the consensus is that tilling would be a bad idea. My only question is though, to firm it up before planting, should I roll it?
After rolling, I'm guessing I might need to spread some thin top soil for the seed to germinate in and then roll again?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
