I have a friend/client that has a 8600 square foot yard. It does not grow grass well at all for it is extremly sandy soil. My plan was to bring in top soil to cover the entire yard. I was thinking about 2 inches. Put down some Fert. seed it and cover with hay. But I'm not sure if that will be enough soil, or if overtime the sand will break down the top soil and we will be in the same position. Also, I have seen in similar threads that people are using loam. Is that a better bet than top soil. How does it price in comparision to soil. And should a scrape the sod off the top before dumping soil. Any imput would be apreciated.
