Laying turf isn't difficult, just a bit backbreaking, that's all. If you want the full low down on lawns, how to prepare, lay and care for, get yourself a copy of D. G. Hessayon's The Lawn Expert - a tenner new, or the library might have one. Tells you everything you'll ever need to know about lawns. You could do seed, but it won't be ready for walking or normal use for at least 3 months. If you want to do turf, bear in mind the need for a hosepipe - you will need to keep it watered well in dry spells for the first 6 weeks or so.
