I am now seeing patches of dirt that previously had heavy clover growth. Perculation test shows excessive soil drainage. ph is around 6.0. I did apply some granulated lime prior to seeding. seeded with a broadcast spreader on the surface. (no roto tilling)Hard to find any expert advice.I contacted the company I purchased the seed from but I can get them to respond. I really need help. Any ideas would be appreciated.
