Here is a question for someone. A friend of mine is in a new (1 year old) townhouse complex. The landscaping is holding up so far. Decent plant material, the spacing is a little suspect but it's reasonable for now. The turf however will likely suffer.it's reasonable in some places really weary looking in others. I have a bad feeling that the standard rush to get the occupancy permits spurred on the contractors to lay the sod over a good inch of sand/and top soil (for leveling on the construction fill you know..) and that's all. So her question to me is- what now? Other than ripping out and redoing, what method of top dressing would be the best route to go? I was thinking it would require a few gentle top dressings over time to build up a root system. I also think the irrigation needs to be watched so that the soil isn't being deluged away. Has anybody had experience (and a solution) with this problem?
