I'm new to this site - can I ask whether anyone knows whether there is a statutory guideline for how much top soil you should get in your garden if you buy a new build house?
We were really looking forward to planting up our new garden but when I went to plant some tiny crocus bulbs: I realised that there was hardly any top soil beneath the grass. I've tried asking the NHBC this question but they have not responded so far.

It is going to be difficult to prove how much topsoil was laid if it specifies tonnes or 2-6 inches but if it specifies 0.5m depth of topsoil and you haven't got a reasonable amount then you may have a complaint.
