Levelling a lawn
I have significant areas which are slightly lower than most of the lawn and wanted to know what to spread to correct this. You advise against sand and say: it is especially important to not top dress clay soil with sand. Instead, use a rich, fine compost. My question is: which rich, fine compost should I be using? The grass is in good condition (it is maintained by a local contractor), and the lawn is very wet in winter due to its clay base. I just want to raise it a little. Thank you.

Any good compost will do. If you can source it locally then this would be best. If not you can always do your own composting. Many garden centers will sell compost, however.
