when amending the hard clay soil in a lawn what is the best stuff to mix in it as im tilling it- to help with the soil so water will flow through better ..later shrubs/etc.

.like when done in large gardens and flowerbeds?

A couple of key points from the above.

1. Test the soil....don't assume
2. When in doubt...compost
3. If true clay....add gypson

Good luck...
