I intend to grow a lawn. The area is approximately 10000 square foot parts of it are shady but most of it gets sun. the surface is stony underneath, but there is a layer of cracked clay an inch deep perhaps.... this place is in Islamabad on simly dam road. I request information about what should I buy (type of grass) and from where in Islamabad can i get the best deal, what should i mix with earth (I have 20 trolley load of good earth for spreading). Please guide me totally clue less and especially a good nursery/place, i have heard these nursery guys hoodwink you ...please help

The basic reason grass fails is the short duration of direct sunlight it gets... now as you have mentioned about the duration, you can prepare the soil first, adding an inch of cow manure and mixing it in upper 4 inch of soil would give a good mix... if your soil is compact and clay type, then add 1 tablespoon gypsum per squarefoot area before adding cow manure... after mixing these things in soil, water it generously.. keep it moist for 30 days, pick any weeds which grow during this period.. It is recommended to not to use grass seeds, as they dont make a uniform lawn... rather buy actual grass and plant it in soil..

Why do we need to add gypsum?
