You will need to till and break all that hard clay up, add some top soil and then grass. Water a lot till it takes hold.

Growing Grass


More important than topsoil will be adding lots of organic ammendments and whatever you need to adjust the Ph. I think if you have your heart set on turf you should scale back on the amount you have planned in favor of native plants and groundcovers instead. Where are you located by the way? You might want to update your profile.
