 grass preparation advice

I need some advice on planting a lawn. We are building a new house. This is a very rocky area. I had to blast to place the foundation. The property was rough graded last fall and now we are in the process of doing things like sidewalks and a driveway. There are small pieces of rock everyplace. What is the smartest way of getting these areas ready for grass planting? There are also areas on the property that have grass growing but are not very smoothe. After 3 years of cutting there are a lot of areas that sill get scalped. Any ideas on how to correct this? Thanks.

If it is posible to get several loads of rock free top soil, that would be your best option. Spread the top soil for the seed bed of your new lawn. For the rough established lawn, spread the new top soil in the low spots. Then you can overseed or let the existing grass fill back in on its own.

I've got an identical situation - How deep/thick does the layer of topsoil need to be? Should I install my sprinkler system first, then add topsoil and smooth/grade?
