Hello whiskey. About how deep was the layer of compost you used to cover the grass?

whiskey, to try to answer your question, I would have to say that if the compost was not deeper than 3 inches, then I believe the grass would re-emerge. Not to worry, your bulbs can be lifted and transplanted after flowering, just before the above ground leaves disappear.
