Removing grass carpet in the garden? ?

Hello everyone, we moved in this flat a year ago and it has a 35 square meters garden. It has a grass carpet on it and I want to remove it and sow real grass in this spring. However I have some concerns about it, if there is too much mud, if the grass i sown doesn't grow properly etc. What do you think? Would you do that, or not?

    We have out grass down in a small area. We covered it with hay. Keep the birds from acting it and from the seed washing away.

    We tended the dirt first and used the best seed we could get. It is a process and you may need to add more seed and hay as some areas don’t take, you got to stay off the new grass until it has taken control. 

    It will be a lot of work this year, but next year and the years after you will have a nice yard

    If, and a big IF, the carpet was properly installed,  there will be 4" of hard core underneath it. Not at all suitable for growing anything. 

    I'd probably lay decking tiles, and forget about growing a lawn.

    You have the whole internet to search for information on sowing a new lawn and you chose to ask YA instead. I would say stick with the carpet until you get your act together.

    I would, since I hate artificial turf. I'd do some research if I were you on how to sow grass, you'll find out what is best.
