    I am going to be leveling and doing a lawn renovation over a 2 year old septic field. The homeowner has been running a drag across it for 2 years trying to level it.?? I am going to be adding good topsoil to level.
    Is there anything I need to know about this besides not to run too much weight on it?
    He has never gotten seed to grow on it.
    Oh, and it is part shade, part filtered sun.

    Nothing really special as the septic installer probally ran a dozer over it to grade I run my Kubota L2800 over beds all the time as far as seed find a sun\shade mix and you will be fine use alot of lime as the shady soil usually needs more
