    "Depends how deep the sand is.
    I wouldn’t recommend it if the roots cannot get to soil or be fed every week with good nutrients."

    "No l wouldn't lay it on sand. I would mix sand and top soil together then lay it, this should help with the drainage of water."

    "Not sure how long it will last if you used just sand but if you buy a few bags of soil and spread it, your turf will last longer."

    "I would say, depending on the depth of the sand, I would mix some topsoil in, just to make the ground more fertile for the roots of the turf.
    So in my opinion, putting turf down directly on sand would be unwise. Rotovate some topsoil in to be sure."
