The big soil questions (new lawn)
Ok, I have the chance to get a fresh start in one area of the yard. Right now, it's just soil and some pebbles (and a couple of weeds I'll spray next week). I have submitted the soil for analysis, and was told I should have the results back in two weeks. But I have a feeling that the soil has no fertility whatsoever, and will be lacking some minerals possibly as well. We'll have to wait and see.
But, what are my options? Initially I was thiking of bringing in topsoil and a bit of compost. But are there other options too? Note, I don't have a year or two to wait for the soil to stabililize. I need grass this fall.
I also read some recent posts on avoiding tilling due to formation lumps. I don't want uneven ground so I guess I can't till (actually it's already unven but that's another story).
How can I work amendments into the soil without tilling? All my soil is sub soil. There is no topsoil whatsoever. That's why I think it won't test out very well.
Thanks as usual.
