Full lawn installation using fresh topsoil
When we are using fresh topsoil to install a new lawn or to re-pitch low-lying water areas, we start by using the natural pitch of the ground first and realigning only as necessary to achieve the results the customer is looking for. This cuts down on the amount of material needed, decreasing the cost. Then we bring in fresh topsoil and spread the topsoil approximately 3 inches thick. We then install high-grade Lesco seed, starter fertilizer and lime. We use lime every time we are planting any type of new grass, to get the best results. You can’t count on the pH of the property or in the topsoil being brought onto the property. Lime ensures a more successful lawn regardless of the existing material pH level.
