Really helpful video thanks. Monty uses compost during ground prep - I am starting from scratch with a 30'x15' area for lawn & beds (chalky soil, Winchester, Hants – any tips on material?) Do I need as much compost to improve the ground for turfing as I do for beds? Can I just topsoil the lawn area or as I’m digging over the whole garden, is this a golden chance to improve all the soil? The bigger dilemma may be keeping my 4 year old daughter off the grass for 3 weeks...! Thank you.
