Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to start a new lawn. Well, when you start a new lawn the most important factor is that your lawn needs some nutrition. So if you've just moved into a new development and you're right on top of clay and you've got sod right on top of that clay with no soil in between, you're going to lose it. It's going to die right away. It's going to rot out that first winter. So the easiest way to start a new lawn is to put at least five or six inches or even a foot of compost or potting soil on top of that yard or whatever you have right there. It doesn't matter if it's sand or if it's clay or if it's even soil that's already there. It really doesn't matter what you have to work with, just add at least five to six inches or a foot of compost or potting soil on top of it and put lots of grass seed and rake it in every spring and fall and add lots of water and you'll find that your grass will grow in very quickly and will be beautiful in little to no time.
