I've got a 4mx4m lawn that is shitty artificial grass just laid on bare earth. Garden is south facing with plenty of sun.
Pondering whether to turf it or do a proper job of artificial grass. Criteria is hard wearing and minimal effort (installing and ongoing maintenance).
Artificial grass seems harder work than expected, I'll need well upwards of a ton of aggregate under it and delivery of a 4m roll is fairly pricey. It should be pretty maintenance free after though.
What is needed for turf, do I need to put some topsoil or something down? Most guides just seem to suggest the soil needs turning over. My garden is pretty small so I don't really want a lawnmower taking up space, are there any other smaller options? How big are rolls of turf, would I be able to fit them in a small hatchback?
