The steps for me after doing the garden dig... to lay new turf

Postby sohaill17 » Thu Jun 18, 2020 11:56 am

Hi, I'm digging out the old lawn plus about 9 inches of soil/gravel and want to add new top soil and then lawn. Should I leave some time between putting the top soil down and laying the turf?

Can there be too much top soil?

Does the soil need to be fully compressed or just walked on?

How many inches should I leave from the top level for the turf so that if finishes with the patio?
