Its a mixyure of them and me...as I have stated...I feed it, scarify it, and do loads of work on it etc........I love a perfect lawn.

Its hard as I am trying to do it all.....next year I should see a masive improvement.....and thos plants will romp away like mad.

i think the lawn looks great as it is. icon_thumleft and everything else. the stonework is top notch too icon_thumright
as you say,kids need somewhere to play,with it all open like that,you are unlikely to get any 'heavy wear' areas so it will remain looking good

Coddy it looks really lovely. Brilliant patio and stonework with a few blisters to show after, I would imagine.

I bet that lawn will get smaller in time, Oh, just take a bit off here, squeeze another plant in, that plant needs more space, I'll just chop a bit more lawn off etc. etc. :lol: :lol: :lol: An acre of garden, 10ft square lawn :lol:

Stunning M8, really is icon_thumleft . A great balance in what you want and the space your kids need from a garden. You have the advantage of a neighbour who also seems to take pride in their property i.e the fence. Some really nice planting and as i said much earlier in your blog.....great patio and stonework

It's looking great Coddy, can only echo what others have said. You've have done all the hard work now. Just need to wait for things to grow bigger and relax....
