New lawn - topdressing with compost vs peat moss
I'm planning on planting a new lawn in 3 weeks. My question is: is it better to topdress with compost or peat moss?
I'm asking because compost is quite expensive here in Poland, and I can get peat moss for free.
Also, I'm following these instructions on WikiHow - are they any good? Or is there anything you would modify. http://www.wikihow.com/Grow-a-Lawn-Easily
(last year I followed their overseeding instructions - with big success).
And finally, do you recommend fertilizing with alfalfa pellets before seeding? That's what DCHall suggested in his "How do I level my yard?" guide.
Thanks in advance!
