Recently I removed some old clothesline poles from my backyard.  They were set in the lawn so I was left with big holes.

I filled the holes with dirt, then added fertilizer and grass seed.  It's been a week, but the grass hasn't started growing yet!

Can anyone help me?  I've been watering the grass seed every day.  Should I put some new soil on top of the seeds?

John,I think it`s a very interesting job. But I am very puzzeld why you didn`t grow flower but grass.Maybe you want to cover the hole ,and make your  backyard be a grassy meadow .That`s great! In the summer,there are so many grasshoppers jump on the grass.My boyfriend want to grow many green things,it looks like willow,winter jasmine,and so on.Growing is very patient work,wait for long ,and one day you will find green sudden.

hi, the only advise i can give you is that you need to be patient, give the grass time to grow, it`ll do it anyway if you really want to.

Is it a real issue or you use the euphemism  Anyhow, how to make grass grow is really difficult and needs lots of awareness about grass and its kind, beside the soil.  

About your grass, maybe because of the dirt the grass doesn't grow. Even the natural soil environment teems with bacteria, fungus, nematodes, earthworms, and other soil organisms. The dirt may break down grass cuttings and hurt the soil.

First of all I advice you to dung the place where the grass should grow. You see there can be exhalation of the soil so you should do it undoubtedly. Or fertilize it with some other things. Most likely the ground is "hungry" and you must "feed it on".

the best season for doing that is fall. it's not so dry.  you have to water the grass at least three times a day and you won't see it becase it takes like two weeks
