NO to council waste RTSmith. Used this once to top dress a lawn...idea was ridiculously flawed. Too lumpy. bitty and unstable ( suspicious of what exactly goes into this and what remains) Awful stuff
my choice would be john innes and sand mixed prior to laying.
Obviously "scratch" existing soil level first.
I top dress with my own sieved soil and mpc on my sandy loam to help maintain levels
perfect time of year considering the now milder weather. Seed should germinate in 2 weeks or less
