Hi, I have recently moved into a property that had a paved garden. I am
planning to lawn this by spreading seeds but I firstly need some help on
preparing the area (17ft x 6ft).
The makeup is as follows from top to bottom:-
Firstly, I have removed the paving stones and the left over sand/cement
mix. There are some stones (pebble sized) that need to be forked and
removed, then there is roughly an inch of soil before about 2/3 inches
of crushed slate (must have been used as something to bed onto and
compacted), then back to soil again.
My question is, do I need to remove all the slate layer and make all
back to soil? Or will the lawn grow quite happily on the top soil layer
(about an inch thick)?
At a later date, I will probably make a border and maybe a vegetable
