growing grass from seed

Asked May 13, 2020, 11:23 AM EDT

I want to grow grass from seed and can use either black dirt or a 50/50 mix if black dirt and compost as the base. Do you have a recommendation for the base? thanks, Joe

Either would be fine. Compost might have a slight edge. It tends to retain water a little better. It provides nutrients. It shouldn’t be very deep because you will want the grass roots to go into the dirt.
