However, if you think it's my job to sort thru and find it then, well....keep waiting.
no attitude here either. one thing you got right is people need to calm there blood pressure.... but that doesnt help with my clay like soil.....

ztoro, i think Ric was scolding you and not kirby. kirby is trying to help you out and not screw you over or anything. gees man, it would help EVERYONE out on ALL posts you start IMMEDIATELY instead of having to tell where you live a # of times on every thread. Take the time to change your location, dude. People will remember you and they will recommend that Roundup is your cure-all problem because you were an arse on that one site they saw you on a long time ago...this is just a scenario. Listen to timturf and Ric, they are very intelligent and experienced in the lawn/landscape/soils ect. field.

I dont think its your job, however seeing how many posts you have I would think you have the time....
First, no I will not "share my expertise" until you take the time to fill out the damn form as it should be. Since you took the time to make the comment "seeing how many posts you have I would think you have the time I must point out the following. My average post per day count is 2.70, yours is 3.42. Since I have been here for over 3 years is it a big shock my count is higher? Who gives a rats ---?

Anyway, I had some good solutions to suggest, since you choose to take the smart azz rebel route, find the solution on your own. Remember I was not the one asking for help, your were, I just wanted to make sure the seed and soil suggestions were the correct ones for your area...

Thank you for the input. I have some more questions though. I am not familiar with any place that sells compost... the city dump sells the leaves that they have picked up from the fall and then offers it to the public again. Is that considered compost? Would that work as described? Also, my dad owns a farm in which he feeds his cattle round bales of hay through the winters. around each of these areas, the cows do their duty and is mixed with the leftover hay. Is that compost? If neither of those are the compost that you are talking about, then where can a person obtain compost worth using? And what is in it? If they are considered compost then, what do I have to do to it to make it usable? I really am wanting to learn somthing here. and I appreciate those helping.
Ric.
I do not know of anyplace like what you are describing as far as the compost you use for usage.
I would like to learn this principle in order to turn some of the properties that I maintain and my own personal soil into great soil instead of trying to solve the problem with fert and lime. I know they have their places but not in my situation.
Again thanks for the informal help.
Chad

Like you said, the water just runs right off.

You need to aerate. Not just once, but your lawn will benefit from mulitiple aerations per year. Especially in the summer. Water heavy the night before. You need to pull the largest size plugs that you can. The water needs a place to get down into the soil.

Jodi, the soil also needs something to hold the water. Clay soils do not absorb water well, theres something to add I just can't remember what it is....
