Sorry if this has been asked before - I'm new to the forum.
I have just bought a new house with a garden which has artificial turf. I want to remove the turf and create a garden.
Having taken up the turf there is a later of sand, then clay.
I don't know whether to simply rotavate the sand into the clay, to help with drainage, or should I try and remove as much sand as possible? My fear is once the sand is dug into the clay it will be impossible to remove.
I will test the PH of the sand to check if it is builders sand. I'm also going to use well rotted manure to try and build up the soil, then put some topsoil on top.
Any advice on whether to remove the sand or not?
