I am in the process of digging over what was the front lawn of my house. This has been a lawn for at least 40 years. I have dug the ground over a full spade depth. The ground was infested with roots from six leyland I trees to the front whic have been removed and an existing diver birch tree to the side. The soil do not appear to have much goodness in it, it a sort of sandy clay soil mix. I intend to rotavate it and then lay turf. Should I treat the soil with some form of fertiliser and if I should what should I use?
