top dressing for a lawn
Hi Was going to top dress my grassed area this week ( lawn ? Not yet ) Being very new to gardening I read loads of tips and adivice on here . And had lots of advice from my workmates never knew I worked withh so many experts. Anyway I'm not to sure what mix of dressing to use ? . Was told my soil had too much clay in it. My plan was too Mow the grass a little Scarify Fork over Then use 3 parts sharp sand 1 part fine compost Bit of crushed chicken manure And a little grass seed That is my plan . Does anyone think the mix is wrong or will it be ok I'm not looking to get a putting green finish just looking lush and green like last year. I know it was a wet year but took a while to dry off after getting soaked. Any tips will be very welcome Been a joiner for 35 years if anyone needs any tips I would gladly try and help out. Been trying to garden for 2- 3 years now and really enjoying it and read all the experts on this site everyday , I got a long way to go . Cheers Mike.
