Garden design is a wide-ranging discipline, with many different smaller areas within the general discipline. One of the most essential parts to creating a beautiful garden is Turfing. Turfing is overlaying the garden with grass, and can require a great deal of preparation.

Preparing the area to be turfed can sometimes be a multi-step process. These steps are:
- Kill the existing plants
- Strip existing Turf
- Rake out stones and roots
- Optional: improve soil quality –
- Addition of lime to acidic soils
- Addition of organics and humus to poor, very sandy or heavy clay soils
- Addition of loam top soil to very sandy soils
