We try to add at least 2-3" of good topsoil with organics before seeding. We will be starting lawn installs in about two weeks once these neverending cleanups and mulch installations get done. We have this one job in particular to do that should be fun. The whole house is built on fill. We'll take pics of some of the surprises we find.
I don't know about the better turn out with the skid steer, and in my situation it is a mute point simply because I have the tractor. This was my very first final grade job, so hopefully I will get better as time goes on, and I am sure that this fact has a lot to do with what this yard has turned out like.
There are things that I will be doing differently from here on out.
