We have just renovated and landscaped an old barn and surrounding ground. The ground area was partly earth and the rest farmyard !. The ground was cleared and three areas', approx 15' x 15', were turfed. The arrangement was that top soil and sand was laid first then turf on the stoney, but not solid, areas. The gardeners, who have now gone bust, did not use sand or top soil and the turf is now very poor, despite thorough watering from rainfall, and stones are appearing thro it !. Is it possible to put sand/topsoil onto the existing turf and then re-seed it ?
