new lawn



hi all, moved into our house 12mths ago, back lawn is slightly sloping say 2 foot over the last 10 ft of the garden.

anyway previous owner had a gravel path, leading to a shed base , this was over 5 ft wide and as long as the garden.

have now dug out the shed base ( 1ft thick concrete) and the 6 inches of gravel and other crap and want to turf the area that was the path and shed base.

now my question, the ground has a lot of clay, so i have dug over the area and have ordered 2 tons of top soil.

whats the best way of improving drainage in this area, should i add sand and gravel then say 4 inches of top soil then turf?

if i put some broken slabs in the bottom of the hole will they contaminate the soil.
