    Is top soil needed for new turf?


    Do you always need to add top soil when laying new turf down? Or is it only when you need to level out the area?

    "If your soil is poor quality and has been neglected over the years, give your turf the best start at adapting to it's new environment by adding a layer of topsoil. Turf ideally needs around four inches of top soil to root in."

    "It is a good idea to add some top soil as long as the ground is level and when it's not you would have to use it to level out"

    "Depends on the soil, if good quality then you’ll be ok without. Ie no stones bigger than a pea and no clay in the top 6 inch"
