How much topsoil do I need in my new yard?
To lay sod you should have a minimum of 4” or 100mm. For seeding, a minimum of 6” or 150mm is recommended. This is where you do not want to be short and an even spread over your yard will result in a uniformed colored, lush green looking lawn.
I want to build a small patio by myself, but I am not sure what I need for a base. Can I just remove the sod and build it on the topsoil? It seems pretty firm...
No way! We have repaired many patios in town that did not have a proper base built under it. This is the most important step in being happy for years to come with your patio. (or retaining wall for that matter!) Ideally , you want to build a patio on firm ‘virgin’ ground or compacted clay (get rid of ALL topsoil). A compacted gravel base(3/8 minus) at a thickness of 4-6” or 100-150mm provides an excellent base. Make sure to leave room for an inch or two of sand to help levelling the bricks.
How often should I do a Spring Clean Up? (ie. Aerating my lawn)
If you pay attention to the yards that have a full clean up each year, you can easily answer this question for yourself! Aerating and power raking helps to get oxygen to the root system and a healthy lawn means you won’t have to spend so much time and money battling weeds throughout the season! The lawn will do that for you!

We bought a new acreage, but it doesn’t drain well and I think there should be a culvert somewhere, and I think we are driving
in on a goat trail. I can’t really call it a road. Who can I call to help with this?
