Error when trying to start lando/bedrock app for the first time

Hi,

I’m following the basic guide on setting up a lando/bedrock project but when I try to start the lando app I get the following error:

warn: Could not find app in this dir or a reasonable amount of directories above it!

The guide stipulates that you must create a lando.yml file in the root of your bedrock project. So I’ve created a new bedrock project using the bedrock guide which, at this point has only required that I run composer create-project roots/bedrock my-project-name. I’ve then continued with to the lando guide by creating my lando.yml file in the project root, setting the variables in the .env file (removing the salts, as instructed) and then tried to run lando start from the project root directory, at which point I encounter the aforementioned error.
