Covering decorative bark with top soil?
I'm having some problem in removing decorative bark from an area where I want to add about 10-20 cm top soil and sow a lawn from grass seeds.
Can I just leave it and cover it with soil?
The bark is Shamrock Decorative Bark Mini Chips.

If it is just a thin layer of bark, just cover it.
If it is more than 2cm, the bark will rot down eventually and the soil might subside, leaving an uneven surface to the lawn. Uneveness could be remedied by top-dressing with good soil raked it in a thin layer.
