Calculating topsoil and seed requirements


LawnSite Member
I'm repairing my backyard lawn from some excavation that was done. I plan to place topsoil over the clay, seed, and cover with straw. I estimate roughly 2500 sq ft is bare.

1. How much topsoil should I order?

2. How much seed should I order?

3. What type of seed should I order?

The yard is in SE Michigan and sees a fair amount of shade.
