How to lay lawn

1. scrap away a layer of 3" of the existing bad soil (& other constrcution materials, if it's a new house)

2. lay 2" thick of good soil (for holding nutrients)

3. then lay 1" thick of sand (for rooting & aeration)

4. then lay the carpet grass

5. then compress firmly to the ground

6. then apply a thin layer of fine sand to fill the gaps

7. and water 2 times daily (morning & afternoon)

8. and apply a little fertilizer (urea or NPK 15:15:15) monthly

and you'll have a great lawn with minimum maintenance for years to come.
