putting new topsoil onto clay
Hi there. Fairly new to the garden! Need information on how to turf a fairly large area of garden. Recently had a contractor remove a few tons of stone and rubble at the side of an existing raised lawn(that is well drained and dry) and wanting to extend the lawn. I have unfortunately started the work with no real knowledge of what to do! have had 9 bags of topsoil delivered and laid it over the area in question which was nearly all clay and after all the recent rain the whole area is now like a large container of soil soup. Comments from you all would be very welcome. I am a reasonably fit 70 year old and want to do the work myself.
