For new lawns work
in 1 to 3 inches of Earthbank fish compost into
the top 3 to 4 inches of soil depending on the
quality of the soil. Poor soil will need about 3
inches of compost and very good soil requires only
about an inch of compost. Add sod, or plant with
seed as usual.
For existing lawns cover the area lightly with 1/4
inch to 1/2 inch of compost. Using a flexible
grass rake, then distribute and rake in as evenly
as possible and then water thoroughly. This
procedure can be repeated several times as the
grass grows into the compost. Please see procedure
demonstrated in the photo gallery.
Keep in mind that lawns can be considered heavy
feeders if you want a green, lush lawn. If this is
your objective then best results will be achieved
with liberal doses of fish compost.
