    Hello,

    Part of my garden is bare dirt (where a greenhouse used to be) and adjoining there's some patchy grass.

    I want to dig up the grass and lay the whole area with turf. Do I need to lay some sort of top soil before the turf goes down? Or does the fact it's already all soil mean it can go straight down?

    Besides removing weeds and pebbles, is there anything else I need to do?

    One more Q - it's a relatively small area I'll be turfing, approx 40 sq. metres. Is that amount of rolled turf likely to fit into an average sized car with the seats down?

    Apologies for the very newbie questions!

    Thanks!

    I’d break up the dirt and wet it a few times.

    40mtrs will be a full pallet.
