So I've been in my newly constructed house for about 2.5 years now. I've had some bare spots in my front yard from the beginning. The builder's landscaping crew was pathetic, but that's another topic that I could talk about all night and don't have the energy to do so. Anyway, one of the spots grew in fairly well, but I still have a few good sized spots. I just bought a pro plugger to try and transplant some healthy growing grass to the spots, and I realized why the spots were there in the first place. I could barely get the plugger in the ground in several spots. In the spots I could get the plugger in decently, it was basically 90% clay/rock, and MAYBE 10% organic matter from 2 full seasons of mulch mowing over it. I'm wondering what y'all think about the best plan of attack. Should I go ahead and place shallow plugs of the grass as planned? Or should I maybe fill the holes with sand for now and see if that helps the area some? I have some masonry sand.
