1. Add at least 6" of compost, and till up the lawn. [You can
do this in sections over a number of years for a lessening of the
total task in any given year.] Reseed, and mist daily until you
have new growth well-established. Then, go to regular lawn care.
2. Add a 1-2" top dressing of compost spring and fall. Overseed
bare patches. In the due course of time, the topsoil will become
more loamy than clay.
If you provide more organic matter, earthworms will be likely to
migrate to your yard naturally.
