Have been told that I can lay new turf over an existing lawn/turf, have I been told this info by a cowboy or can it actually be done like that?

I supose it depends on whether the site is level and how much weed is in it. I have been slicing turf off of my garden to make into beds, put it on a bank, 2 turfs deep and its well growing.

I dare say you will get lots of real practical advise on here, so wait for some more comments. Personally, i would if it was level and weed free.  Saves a lot of work if you want a quick job.

No, it won't take root and You will never be happy with the finish if you try it as it will never really take properly.

What is the problem with the existing lawn? It would be better to sort that out.

Regards

Just requires a re-turf that's all, it's very mossy & patchy etc

Agree with Edd - it'll just curl up and die   If a job's worth doing it's worth doing well, and all that jazz

...it's a bit like the cowboy who told me that he could lay laminate flooring over carpet...

I will keep an eye on my bank then, i wonder how long it will take to die.
