A Lawn!!

Ok so its probably silly to get excited over some grass but we've been planning & trying to get it sorted for 6 years now - the garden slid down the hill at one point just after we moved and so years of waiting to make sure it had all settled again. I'm over the moon with an area of level lawn.

We all raked topsoil.


We had lessons from Bert about how to lay the turf.



We helped flatten the joins.

And finally we had a lawn - hooray!



So we still have quite a bit of work to do but at least we've got somewhere grassy to sit this year!

That's a lovely lawn. We have trouble getting grass to grow and I would love to be able to sod the yard.

Wow! I'd be excited too, your garden looks great. We are having to seed ours as turf is expensive so no brilliant results for us:(
