anyone got a rough idea of the thickness of turf before its laid, Im just preparing my back garden for turfing, and want to get the height right for the retainer
Its a very slight slope, with a gravel path along the end, the retainer is to stop the lawn migrating into the gravel, its stepping down onto it.

The main area is prepared, I have a 4" retainer, and want the turf to come up to this height, Im buying loam/topsoil to build the existing level up to the required height, and need to work out how much to buy.

Dont make any allowance for the turf. By the time the ground has settled it will be at the right height.
