New lawn prep

got a new lawn to lay in the next few day.

remaining soil is deep, very fine and very moist, not well draining. It’s basically like a fine silt (its next to a small stream and has hardly any stone in it.

i want to rotovate to loosen it up but think it’ll still be too claggy to level easily. It’s about 65m2 and was thinking of having a 1.5t load of sharp sand delivered to help loosen the whole thing up and aid drainage.

i’m then going to add about 5 ton of freshly dressed topsoil, which around here is generally quite course.

Any recommendations on this plan would be highly appreciated
