Planting lawn from scratch
Due to recent building works my back lawn has been completely removed of grass and the surface is now just compacted dirt. I want to grow a lawn back but I'm not entirely sure where to start when it comes to preparing the area for sowing grass seed (we looked into turf but it's just way too expensive). I know that a layer of top soil will need to be put down but how much is needed? It seems to be expensive stuff. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
