OK. I only want to do this once so should i get a turf cutter and remove what remains of the dead turf then rotivate the soil? I hear people talk of adding organic material but what do they mean by that. The lawn area is about 1,000 sq mtrs? I have soil but should i add sand, what kind, etc...Many questions i know but ive never done this before and its going to be hard work and costly so i only want to do it once and do it right. When i bought the house new 6 years ago i had it turfed but the cowboys just turfed on 2" of sand but that was on top of a hard clay based soil so no wonder it didnt take too well. Your input is appreciated.
