I'm doing a fairly large backyard remodel and I guess I'm managing it myself with subcontractors doing different pieces of the work. I just had trenching done and a retaining wall added. The soil was compacted and graded for "next steps," but I'm forced to wait for the pool contractor to finish the coping before I can move forward with the poured concrete for the pool decking and patio.
This means I'm looking at having a bare dirt backyard for the next 3-4 months due to the pool contractor's timeline. Can I / should I put down some temporary grass seed (ryegrass in Southern California) on the compacted soil or will this just create more work down the road to re-work the soil once it's finally time to pour the concrete? My goal is to reduce the amount of erosion and really just the amount of dirt blowing around and into my house.
Thanks in advance!
