    Hi from Cape Cod. I am about to seed a new lawn in the backyard . How deep of Loam should I use? I have brought in over 800 yards of fill to fill in a hole inthe yard. Now is time for the loam.

    thanks in advance

    Thanks for all the input, ordering 100 yards as we speak. Goin for the 6 inch depth, I think it will grow in great . never had any problems with the Lesco seed too .

    thanks,
    Dave
