Well I've had a proper grafting day today. Spent several hours digging around a Trachycarpus in the blazing sun (see separate thread) and then went and laid a lawn. It does look a lot better I think with a nice bit of green.

Check out page one and four to see how the grass used to look.

Yes sunflowers. Always have a few in the garden.

Ah thought they were of the front and you'd grassed the back.

Really is a massive transformation!

Cutting the grass with a beer is great too lol

Top job Dude icon_thumleft finishes it off nicely

only thing i'd do is cut it back from the log roll a little to make it easier to mow, otherwise it's "strimmer time" and lots of breaking cord to keep unwinding.
