Keep Off The Grass

Recommended Posts

Chief Cheetah

Sick and tired of cutting the grass.  It's uneven and patchy, doesn't grow under the trees, has lots of weeds and lots of moss, basiclly it looks nothing like Wimbledon.

I'm considering an artificial lawn and I'm wondering if anybody has any experience of them and any advice they can offer.

We've turned a particularly unmanageable part of our garden into a wildflower meadow, all we did is seed with wildflower seeds and leave it to get on with it.

Painted green?

No, just turn your whole garden into a concrete pad, no problem then.

Concrete.

heathen!,  concrete means you have water disposal problem.

depends how much grass you have?  Small paths, seating areas then a Japanese style garden..... But in a big garden that is a lot of shingle @ £30-40 a tonne.

Do what I did. Dog a small channel around it, put batons in using post concrete and then black liner. Stones on stop with a few decorations. Drainage still in place Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I guessed that.  As your Monica suggests perhaps Cheetah could turn it into a flower or veggie plot!

Same issue here! Grass seed isn't taking. I think turf will die

You can pick a cheap lawn mower up from a Rescue shelter 

 

It's called a "Goat". Might need some TLC though :)
