Have just spent the last 2 days digging, raking and levelling the garden getting it ready for some roll out turf.
I am looking for some advice on what grade/type to get. I have a space of approx. 25 foot x 30 foot and have 2 dogs and an active 8 year old.

Any advice grateful.
Dublin area.

Bit of fertilizer high in Potassium (K) will help as well
