    Grass growing after decking removal


    My family and I moved into a new house recently. There is old decking at the end of the garden and we’d prefer to have an all grass garden. If we have the old decking removed, is there any chance that grass will grow again there? My partner and I asked the previous owners and they said the decking has been there since the early 2000s. Or we will have to install artificial grass instead?

    "Good afternoon,

    As long as there is soil under the decking, then you can install grass/turf rolls, and this should grow fine.
    You just need to ensure that you water and fertilise the grass well."

    "Hi Simon if it has been down for that many years then No the grass won’t grow back due to roots would of been killed off, so yes you’ll have to lay turf down there."
