Normally developers tend to bury a lot of "stuff " under a garden as its cheaper than paying £230 per skip to take it away
It may pay you to ask neighbours of their experiences of trying to "use "their gardens
You can dig up a square of turf near the edge of your garden and have a look down to 18" to see what you have inherited
Normally a lawn should not be "uneven rocky difficult to walk on " as its only soil and grass seed !!
You would not expect to have stones under a newly laid carpet !!
In my garden where the previous owner had a greenhouse and I have dug down 18" to find bricks , half bricks and rubble that they used for a solid base
" I was told by the developer it may take a year or so for the soil underneath to fully establish itself and make the garden softer to walk on "
Soil compacts as you walk on it so in theory it will only get firmer
? What do you want from your garden.
