First you need to leave about 30 or 40 centimeters of fertile soil, performing light movements of the earth. Subsequently the stones and the roots that the soil contains will be removed, once the cleaning is finished with the help of the rotary tiller it is necessary to go to work the soil until the earth is soft, this processing will have to be carried out when the earth is perfectly dry. Finally, you need to rake the ground to be able to level it properly. A very important processing step is the fertilization, which must be carried out in a perfectly uniform manner with fertilizers with a high content of phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen. Furthermore, it is also possible to use preferably mature manure. To ensure that the fertilizer or manure is absorbed by the soil, further milling is recommended. Furthermore, do not forget the rolling that is obtained with the help of a special roller that must weigh at least 100 kilos. After having carried out this last process, the surface must be leveled again to eliminate the depressions or bumps. After all these fundamental procedures you can start sowing the lawn, with the help of a precise seeder. Afterwards it will be necessary to rake the soil to cover the seeds perfectly. Finally, you will have to pass the roller again. The first irrigation must be gradual without causing erosion or flooding which could compromise the growth of the ma
