Would love to get started with the garden but the weather is so awful. Anyway, good soil and pricing is alright.
Dirt cheap
£30 delivery
As someone who has no idea about gardening. My garden is a mess not with shrubs just very uneven, ugly, patchy grass with some 5inch dips in places. Can anyone tell me (in summer) if rolling old grass, covering with top soil like this and putting new grass is all i need to do? Any tips or advice would be most welcomed thanks.

£7.95 or (£12.95 Saturday) delivery for me if I was to purchase 10, £30 charge is only for bulk deliveries (I work at wickes, so unless your buying a tonne of them, then delivery works out pretty reasonable really) 😁
Man I just don't dig this stuff!

As someone who had just repaired a garden in a similar state. I'd say you need to do more.

-Pull out all weeds
-Hire a rotivator and rotivator the soil
-Get a load of top soil (not from Wickes) from your local garden supply centre (Grade B is fine) put it on and level it out and compact it down (I did about 4 inches worth)
-Then stick down grass and then don't walk on it for a month and ensure it is water regularly.

If you stick grass on top of what you've got it will be in the same state as it is today in 1-2 years time.

For me to do that in my 10m * 6m Garden was 9 hours solid labour on my own

I changed from 36 to 20 bags x2
I paid around £35 per 900 (?)kg sack, so it might be worth checking locally if you need more soil /compost.
Thanks 1ks. Ordered 12 bags for delivery tomorrow.

I'd be inclined to just try filling in the dips and perhaps seeding where you've filled in. Also get a aerator and use that to break up the top. Certainly get some weed and seed on it later in the spring.

Thank you for that. Its our first ever garden but my wife is talking about this artificial grass. Is that any good? cheaper? Sorry all I know is my garden needs attention. Where did you get your grass rolls from?

Well good luck on deciding on your next steps. For sure I've discovered (through necessity) how much there is to learn about gardening... Spent half the winter pulling back Ivy from ours!! Though I quite like improving my understanding! YouTube is an amazing rrsource.
(Personally I can't stand the fake stuff and think it looks a bit naff, even compared to a slightly weedy and uneven lawn.... Plus the environmental benefits of maintaining garden space. I guess if you had a dog it might be convenient?? But depends what you're aiming for!!)

Deweed existing and feed it, clip it short and apply in1/4 inch layers slowly filling dips.

Or as soon as its dry enough fork the lot over and take it level, and either turf or seed it
I bought about 10 of these bags from Wickes for my planned raised beds last spring and for one reason or another the beds weren't built so it's been sat in my garage for a year.

It's soil so am I right in expecting it should be OK?

What are the classifications for top soil grades?

Guess it varies from merchant to merchant, but grade B for me had stones up to 10mm in size which is more than fine for turf.

Grade A is up to 6mm stones

You buy these by tonne bags.
