Well...You could dig the whole yard up and bring in good soil. But, I don't think the customer will pay for this...Aerate the crap out of the yard.Put down a pellitized Gypsum at the rate on the bag.....Top Dress with an organic materal..You can take it a step further..Aerate,Pellitized Gypsum, Topdress,Overseed, Fertilize...What ever you do short of tearing up the whole lawn is gonna be a slow process...Changing the soil profile is a SLOW process...
