    Default Lawn Depressions? Is Ritalin the answer?

    Donít know if this question belongs on this forum but couldnít think of a better group to ask. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    On my lawn, there are several areas of depression, for example, the septic field rows are a bit lower then the surrounding areas, kind look like stripes in my lawn. Is it best to just fill in the depression with some high quality dirt and seed? Do I need to remove the existing grass from the depression?

    Thanks, Jim [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Hmmm, let's see...

    For very shallow depressions you can rake sand into the existing grass and never know you did it. It can take several applications to build up a bit.

    For larger depressions you can just throw topsoil right onto the turf and seed it.

    For major re-contouring you would probably want to pull up the turf with a sod cutter, re-contour the soil below then re-lay the sod.

    For the most significant depressions I recommend a good comedy, friends and a few beers [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I find that having a pizza with the beers will really hit the spot [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

    just fill it in with good dirt and seed it. if they are really deep , use any kind of fill and the last 4 " with good soil. seed and fertilize and keep it moist.

    Great feedback, thanks again everyone.

    This weekend I will be moving some dirt, seeding, watering, drinking beer with a good friend and watching a comedy.
