Topsoil over straw good or bad?
Recently I had land clearing done on about 3/4 acre lot. The lot was covered with spiny brush growing underneath large trees. The brush was removed by scraping 1.5" of the ground. What was left was a fine powder like topsoil that would blow with strong wind gust or even by walking on it. Unfortunately with Hurricane Earl nearing I put down straw and wetted it down in hopes that the strong winds would not blow the dusty topsoil around the neighborhood.
So my question is I want to grow grass in the said area and would like to know if placing topsoil on top of the straw would be a problem or should I rake out the straw first?
Thanks for replying back.
