Growing grass in red clay soil
This is my first posting! I have just recently moved to NC from Michigan and have already had enough of the red clay dirt. Apparently I became very spoiled by the rich, black dirt of the northern climes and I miss my lush, green lawn. To make matters worse, I moved into a new house without an established lawn. My husband and I tried seed twice with different types of fertilizer but the grass is very patchy. We did place sod in one small section and it seems to be doing fine for now, but we are on a budget and have a large yard. Any suggestions for helping us grow the NC version of a great lawn? We have time and strength but not a lot of know-how. Thanks!
