Breaking out the rototiller this weekend. ... Just kidding's good anyway because it'll solve my smoothness problem.

I just wish though I had read the reviews on Scott's top soil before I spread 300 bags of it I thought I was doing a good thing and getting the best top soil I could. Paid quite the premium over a delivery from a nursery, and from what I'm reading, it's junk. The more it sits, the less it feels like dirt. It's all fluffy. Seems more like a dirty mulch than it does top soil. Hopefully rototilling it in will solve this problem too.

Good idea...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
