I have a small garden, and it is in a patio. I have taken up the slabs and there is some concrete mixed with stones, hardcore and seems very porous. I want to lay grass there. Do I need to break up the concrete, or could I just drill a load of holes on it to help with the drainage?
I thank you for your help in advance :-)

Growing Grass On Top of Concrete

I do have grass growing on top of concert and it is coming back from last year. It is doing great. My friend dug up sod where I wanted a flower bed & put it on the cement then put bricks around it to hold it in place. Just keep watering it. (04/11/2008)

Growing Grass On Top of Concrete

Hi, I'm new to this and need some advise on growing grass on concrete. My concrete is 4 inches thick, a land size of 10x50. If I break the concrete my entire wall will fall off, there's a solid rock in between my wall and drain 1.5 metre, my house is an end-lot.


I was thinking of covering 2-inches of top-soil in the bottom layer + 1-inch of sand as the top layer, with Phillipine grass on top of it. Can anyone suggest on this, please? Btw, I am from Malaysia (05/14/2009)
