Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
I have an area of my allotment which I would like to turn to grass as a playarea for my children. The area in mind is quite thick with marestail, nettles and thistles. I have just dug over the area, removed a lot of roots and quite a lot remains. Would it be feasible to cover the area with old sheets and carpet, spread a layer of sieved soil and compost over the top, and then sow grass seed on this. I'm desperate to ger rid of the weeds from this quite large area.
