Likewise, how do you pull up old turf?
If your lawn is really small, shovels and a mattock may do the trick. Otherwise, rent a sod-cutter to shave off the top grass evenly and a rototiller to create optimum soil. Get rid of the old turf debris. Use shovels and garden rakes to remove what the sod-cutter can't reach.
Additionally, can I put topsoil over existing lawn? You can add topsoil to an existing lawn -- and in some cases, you should. Adding a layer of topsoil to your lawn is called "topdressing," and it's a technique you can use to improve the look of your grass. It's important you prepare correctly and choose the right type of soil for a great-looking lawn.
