This is my first post as I'm hoping to get some advice on my lawn problem.
As you can see by my username, I would class myself as a complete novice around the garden! To be honest, this house is the first property where I've had a garden to tend!
I have a rear lawn which is near enough south facing, but more than half the lawn is mossy. Also, the garden slopes from the top left to the bottom right.
I am getting an extension built in the next couple of months and before work starts, I am having a retaining wall built to put the soil removed from the foundations put into to level up the garden somewhat.
My question therefore is, should I remove the top layer of garden (moss and all) and use this after the soil from the foundations has been added? What would be best to treat the moss before re-using if that is indeed the best way forward? I will also be needing to buy some topsoil to make up the shortfall to level the garden, so what would be the best order to do this in? i.e. soil from extension in first, then top soil then old lawn on top (once treated of course!)?
Thanks for looking and any help is appreciated!
