hi there gardenqueen i would use a glyphosate based weedkiller like round up pro biotive as it biodegrades in the soil and they say is safe for planting just 6 weeks after treatment.. maybe try sprsying the area and leaving for a week or two then digging the area again so any seeds laying deepcom to the surface and germinate then they can also be treated job done will be alot eaiser to keep on top of them that way hope that helped a bit.. know quite a bit about thsi sort of thingvits my job lol 

Laying turf on a gravel/soil/dirt mixture - possible?

hi then munroar exciting stuff getting a garden for the first time that you can make truly yours.. the only problem may be the tree depending how large the canopy is and how far them roots would have spread as cant see properly from the picture.. but it also depends on how much money you wish to spend as turfing can be costly but is instant where as seeding is the cheaper alternative but may take a while to get that perfect lawn as weeds can set aswell.. if i was turfing i would remove the majority if not all of the larger stones give the space a good raking then apply a thin layer of topsoil,dependant on what your soil is like, and water well then lay your turf on top of that but be sure to top up any rutts or holows you may have already or you end up with a dippy wavy lawn which believe me is not pleasant to cut and can almosty certain scalp certain areas when mowing. hope that has helped a bitbut i have before now laid turf on worse areas then u have there. oh and some of the smaller gravel makes good drainage
