How Do I Go About Planting Citrus Trees?
I would like to plant some citrus trees into our lawn area but I have heavy clay based soil with minimal topsoil. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should go about planting the trees?

It really depends on the type of citrus tree your are planting but first and foremost I would suggest fixing the clay soil to better your chances of success. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/how-to-improve-clay-soil.htm
Newly planted trees do require lots of water while they establish their root systems. These articles will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/watering-newly-planted-tree.htm
