blackmagic - did the mesh show through the grass or was it quite well hidden?

 

One the grass has grown through you are cutting above the mesh so it gets embedded in the grass and doesn't show unless you cut the grass too short.

Claz has just had her garden done with artificial grass - I think its the same stuff Marion linked to and several of the Gap people have done theirs as well.

Thanks snow.

 

I prefer real grass though, but it does get boggy in my garden when it's wet. I'm going to get it sorted and then make sure the dogs don't go on it during the autumn/winter. They've got plenty of patio space to play on now.

Takes time but I used lots of saw dust - dug down 3 / 4 feet put some in soil, some more etc a few years ago - also some horse manure dug in to try & improve the soil, fork holes into it regularly etc. I've still not got there in terms of getting the grass resown well this year - dogs plus builders with a digger for next doors wall last year - but it's starting to come through & the soil is certainly a lot better than it used to be.

 

Gardeners forum I took ideas from here http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/problem-solving/clay-soil-and-boggy-lawn/74423.html

 

Good luck

Before and After pics of what has now been christened 'Rhodo Corner' - fence panels have been installed and painted, as has the back fence.

They're more interested in pooing on it at the moment. As are the birds.

 

In the middle there's a lovely sunny spot and because of where the garage is it's not at all overlooked. I suspect I'll be spending some time out there when ths sun's out.
