If you’re trying to get your lawn in shape, but have lots of weeds, or moss or some other problem, the following steps will help you get started.
This year there are some considerations that aren’t typical. Since we’ve had a lot more rain than normal over the past year, we have very wet and clumpy topsoil. This is not only true for lumbrjake.com, but for all topsoil and compost providers in the mid-Atlantic.
The clumpy topsoil problem is not too much of a problem for professional landscapers. but it often presents quite a challenge for a home do-it-yourselfer. When the topsoil is really clumpy, it is very difficult to spread. As such, homeowners may find it difficult to get the material spread evenly. Professional landscapers have two things going for them… First, they have man power. When the topsoil needs to be broken down and raked even, it helps to have an entire crew. Second, they have the right tools. Using soil spreaders can help, but they can become easily clogged. Having a commercial grade soil spreader can really help.
This spring you can expect your topsoil delivery to be a bit moist and clumpy, so be prepared to deal with it.
