Laying turf over old turf?

That all makes sense to me Scott 

What's this plant?

Cut it down to the base and remove it, dig out the roots as best you can and treat any regrowth with a weedkiller containing glyphosate.  Spray or paint it on and leave it for several weeks until the leaves have died.  That means that the weedkiller will have travelled back into the roots and is killing them too!

Re PMs - Daniel has alerted the support team and they are looking into it - there is a short term solution for PMs so look out for Daniel's thread about them.
