nubie uses coarsely (1/2') screened topsoil for seeding
I used topsoil from a local supplier who sold me topsoil screened to 1/2" particles for topdressing the lawn. I just spent 3 days re-seeding large patches (where I pulled off crabgrass) and overseeding rest of the turf with TTTF and shady mix (various fescues + KBG). I've just discovered online that topsoil for lawn should be screened to 1/4" - 3/8" particles. Did I just spend 3 backbreaking days wreaking havoc on my turf by using 1/2" screened topsoil!?? The 1/2" gravels will possibly hamper some seedlings from growing and dull the mower blades more rapidly in the future... but is this a surmountable snafu ...? Is there something I can do next year to reduce these gravels that I have unwittingly hauled over into my lawn ... ???
