Default Mud pit...what to do???

Okay let me start by saying I know nothing about gardening or
landscaping.

About 2 weeks ago I had someone dig up my asphalt driveway (which is
about 1000 square feet), and put cement in except for half of the 3rd
spot which I told hm I wanted to plant grass. He put topsoil in this
spot seems to be about 12 inches deep loosely packed. Anyway 2 days
later it rained real good, now I've got a mud pit, still 2 weeks after
it's not by any means dry you can't even step in it without it going
up to your calf. What should I do? Plant grass now? How can I pack
it down?

Thank you in advance for any help,
Gill

So anyway......

I did think it had dried up the other day so I borrowed a roller but
to no avail.....you can't even walk behind without sinking.

Any other ideas, or just wait it out?

If it's that wet, add more fill (dirt, sand, etc.) and try rolling it in. If
it gets that loose when wet, you need more fill.

The subdivision where a friend lives was built upon clay with just
enough dirt over it to grow a lawn. Low spots in his lawn take days to
dry out. It may be the same where you live.

Do your neighbors have problems with wet spots?

The OP didn't indicate where he lives. If it's not in a warm part of
the county and the soil is stable enough so that it won't erode or
cause problems over the winter, I would just let it settle by itself.
It's really too late to plant most desirable grasses in most parts of
the country.

Sounds like you wound up with a lot of loose top soil to fill a deep
hole. This problem could have been avoided by using gravel or other
appropriate fill as a base first, compacting it and then screened top
soil for the last 7 inchs or so. I'd also make sure that excess water
from the driveway, etc. is channeled away from this area, not filling
it with more water.

Dude,
What is your problem?
I've only been to this group twice and already I don't like you.

Why in the world would anyone take any advice from someone who calls himself
Diespammer with not one, not two, but THREE EXCLAMATION POINTS!!! Oh my!
YOU call people morons? And you claim to be from FU.NET How clever, tough
guy!
I have a comcast address too. Should I close my ports too? Is the
DIESPAMMER!!! boogie man going to send me a virus??
What a dumbass.

Go ahead, reply by calling me names. I'm sure it's why you wake up in the
morning.
Grow up, little boy.

Go rent a water-fill roller and compact it. Leave it a -little-
high when you're done, because it will still settle after all
is said and done.

Thanks for your response that I predicted.

I hope you killfiled me. That way you can't respond with you witty
pedophile remarks and I'm sure that must eat away at you.

He uses several names. The ironic part is he posts as -diespammer!!!-

He also hawks computer parts in this gardening group. Check the ip.

What is with your 15 year old boy fetish ? Did your Daddy molest you
as a child ? Is that what causes you to keep rambling about boy's.
Get a life Pedophile ! ....ps. another one for your abuse file.
