Location - 30 miles west of Aberdeen Soil - quite a clay soil with lots of fist sized stones Area - about 600 sq. metres (although we'll only be laying a lawn on about 200 sq. m of it to start with)
I have a plan but please advise on how good/bad you may think it is:
Spray all weeds/ground with glyphosate
Spray all weeds/ground with glyphosate again two weeks later
Once all weeds are dead, rotorvate ground (to make levelling easier)
Level and de-stone soil (and possibly add top-soil if needed)
Step 5 (if time permits):
Spray any new emerging weeds with glyphosate
Remove/dig in dead weeds
Are there any flaws or perhaps better ways to establish a new lawn? Also, I was looking at getting a wide-toothed rake such as the Chelwood 18E or 18K for raking up the stones as these rakes have a 4cm gap between the teeth. Would you recommend any other or would one of these do the job well?
Apologies for all the questions, but I really am new to this (plenty more questions to come on growing veggies etc. but first things first!) Thanks in advance for any advice you could possibly give.
