We got this place recently and are planning to put sod in the front yard. We know that the previous owner had grass in the front yard before and a big tree. They remove the tree about 5-6 months ago as its root was damaging the water pipe and since then the front yard was all mulched up. After removing the mulch you can see the dead grass root patches and if dig a bit more into the soil you see lots of small tree roots and grey rock/gravel look like chunks in the mud. Are these gravels (not as hard as the stone, can be easily crushed with shovel) intentionally left there for certain reason, like curbing the tree root/weed? Do we need to remove them all before putting in sod?
