Laying lawn turf and would appreciate advice
First time gardener here so I will try include as much relevant information as possible.
I've recently removed all the gravel the last tenants had covering the front and back garden as I'm wanting grass everywhere for my daughter to play on, due to the time of year and relevant ease I have decided to go down the turf route, rather than seeding.
I would like it to be good grass that doesn't get waterlogged in winter seasons so my daughter can play all year round, however I'm struggling to determine the soil composition after I've removed all the gravel and what/how much I should add to this soil (sand/compost/topsoil?) to make it thrive without flooding.
Initially I thought it was predominantly clay so was going to mix in some sharp sand, however after a few tests it seem's like it might be sandy loam, I've done a few tests including a glass jar test if this helps;
I'm presuming the top white line is clay (7-10%), with the mid blackish silt (17-25%) and the bottom layer sand (65-76%), the only reason I doubt this is because of all the online articles saying really cloudy water indicates high clay.
Also I dug a one foot deep hole by 2 feet wide and filled it with water (the soil was already wet due to it raining all morning which I guess could impact some retention) and it took just under 2 hours to completely drain, also tried the ribbon test and struggled forming a ribbon without it breaking.
Advice would be greatly appreciated as I really want to get this correct the first time.
