Ok I am a total gardening novice. We moved into our new house about six months ago, in the back garden is a gravel path (quite large stones), I would like to take up these stones and turf this area (quite a large area 1m x 6m (round the edge of our garden). How should I go about doing this? Should I try to do it myself or is it better to pay someone? I have a two year old so am keen to get this done ASAP so he can enjoy the garden.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
Thanks.

Well once you've removed the stones you may well have to top up the ground with some top soil to bring it up level to ( the existing lawn ?),you could sow grass seed ( cheaper ) in the spring,or lay turf ( instant result ),1 x 6 m is actually quite small so I would go with turf,you will need to water it if it's dry,again lay it in spring.
It's a job you could do yourself,or find a local Gardner & pay.
