Digging up turf
Hi We have an area of grass/moss at the front of our house that we would like to re-design and make into a Victorian garden with gravel and flower beds. I was planning to dig up the turf, level soil +/- sand then cover with a membrane where we want the gravel pathways. My question is, if we are covering up, can we just leave out the 'digging up turf' bit? I think it would save time but perhaps not if it will cause problems later on! Any help appreciated! Thanks.
