It's a bit to well compacted you will need to loosen the top layer of soil for the turf to key. You could also add a layer of good soil on top to help the grass. Remember when you lay the grass to use some long planks and make sure all joins are really tight. Even this time of year water plenty to stop the turf shrinking.
