    I have lifted around 8 slabs as I'm wanting a full garden of grass but as I have lift the slabs the soil was mixed with stones and I have took away most of the stones away. I have bought fresh soil to put on top and grass seeds.. what I'm wanting to know is will the grass still grow

    Rubbish, grass roots, depending on species, can be around 8-12inches long if a proper root zone has been prepared.

    no watering?

  • Dreadful Mr. T. You really needed to add top grade 1 top soil to that stone infested mess. Putting a level line down gives one a greater degree of accuracy in ensuring the lawn will be level and true to the gradient of the garden. Do your stomp but you should use a long piece of 2 x 2 wood to flatten the soil out, fill the shallows and stomp again. Repeat.. When it comes to the first cut one should use lazy backs rather than an mower as mowers can tug young grass out from the soil. Do this and as you inch forward stand on a plank and this presses the new shoots into the soil. A very gentle rake above soil level to remove cut grass. I would wait til grass is inch and half before cut. Keep soil moist established.

  • That's handy, there's plenty of stones on the patch to throw at the cats.if they turn up.

    Hope you don't have a cylinder mower, it will be wrecked with all those bricks.

    After watching this video and many like this, I followed the instructions and I would advise that you make deep holes in the area that you want to seed before planting the seed. By putting holes in the ground you will ensure that grass will root and not come loose once the seed has produced the grass. The grass will be firmly in the ground.

    I would also recommend laying some compost in the area and leaving it for 3 day, before seeding. The compost will provide nourishment for the raw seeds.

    Rain water will also provide nitrogen to help the seeds produce grass.
