Is my top soil okay for new turf?

Hi - recently had 18te of screened top soil delivered.  The soil is now down but after a watering many stones have appeared.  Is this going to be okay for laying turf?  Thanks

    If you were going to seed it I would say try and remove the stones, but luckily turf is a bit more forgiving.  I would rake over the surface again and remove the larger stones.  Then you should be good to go 
    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Thank you.  I will go over it with a rake and sieve.  Also I am going to spread some fertiliser specially for top soil prior to new turf going down to give it a boost.
