New Lawn Question


I am putting in a new lawn and found that about 6" under a spot where I often have very brown looking grass there is an old asphalt bed.

I'm wondering if it would be bad to till through this or if I should just leave it there and not worry about it? It is very soft and I can go through it with a hand shovel so my tiller should have no problem, I'm just wondering if I'll be worse off.

Why not just take the old asphalt out?

Because it's buried under 6" of dirt and I don't want to have to fork up the money to haul it out and bring in new top soil.

In that case i would guess that you wouldn't be any worse off by tilling it and hope for the best,might even help the browning.
