Ply wood on floor

Hi all,
For various reaons I've turned my very large bathroom into a small bathroom and small bedroom. I had to replace quite a few floor boards and due to me not being very good at all this there are some largish gaps between the new floorboards. (nothing dangerous)
To cover up the gaps I've put ply wood down which is fine but what I want to know is when I ask some carpet fitters to come round and install carpet will they be OK about putting it onto ply instead of floor boards? Also does it matter that there is a very small step down where the ply ends and the floor boards on the landing start? Its only a small step down (used very thin ply wood, i'm guessing 5mm).
Cheers, Chris

carpeting onto ply works ok, but it would be a good idea to fix the ply round the edges down, maybe ith pins or staples.
A 5mm step, how about cutting the edge at a shallow angle to mke it less noticeable.
3mm hardboard is more often used than 5mm ply.

Is the carpet going end at that point or continue out as the same bit of carpet onto the landing? The former, the carpet joining strip will help disguise the transition but may well still look a bit odd. Champhering the edge of the ply dow to the strip on the floor boards over a couple of inches should hide it nicely and avoid wear froma sharp edge quickly showing through.
The later, with no strip, will lead to a nasty ridge and wear showing very quickly.

That should be possible to accommodate with the normal sort of bars used between carpet sections.
The ply will be absolutely FINE. Its a FAR better surface for carpetng than wonky floorboards..
