Extending Grass Area in garden
I have recently moved into a new property and have been working on the garden. The garden does look at though it was previously occupying the entire back garden area but the old owners at one stage made this smaller. The had dug out a trough to shorten the grass aread and make the outside soil. They did not look after the garden so the outside soil area has just grown with grass and a mix of weeds. Really the biggest challenge for me is filling in the trough area. Please forgive my ignorance as I am not an experienced gardener but I was under the impression I could just fill the entire trough area with new soil and just plant grass seeds on top of it. This will allow me to make all of the graden area flat so I can work on it a lot easier. Can someone tell me if it is just a case of using soil and seeds or is there anything else I would need to do? Just as a note the trough is about 5-10cm deep. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
