    Default Lawn or pavement first

    Is it better to put the lawn in before the pavement or vise versa.

    I am just guessing you will do driveway or apron. Pavement first. the guys putting the pavement in will mess up your lawn.

    Yep, that's the only way I'd do it.

    I'm sure there will be some grass damage if you put the lawn in first...

    I built our home 2 years ago. At the time all I could afford was gravel for the driveway. We spread loam and put in irrigation,grew a real nice lawn etc. This past fall I had a base coat of blacktop put down. Which then had me spreading more loam and moving sprinkler heads. Long story short... Driveway then grass. Much easier.

    If you have a choice, always complete your construction prior to landscaping activities. The last thing you would want to do is grade smooth and get your drainage right so you have no standing water and then topsoil application if needed prior to putting in grass. You would just have to take up any grass under the pavement.
