UPDATE: August 2016
Its been a few months now since I posted the picture at the bottom of this blog post of my somewhat sad looking lawn. Over the summer I’ve been watering it religiously as well as cutting it and dethatching (raking out dead grass). Its still not perfect but its a darn sight better than it was in June! This is grass seed only – no turf, and a few months of patience has saved well over £100 in buying turf. The lawn today:
If you’re like me at one time or another you’ve needed to completly redo your lawn. Maybe it was concrete when you started (yup) and you had to pull all of that up, level it out, put a ton or so of new topsoil on top and then lay some new lovely turf. Then, water that turf regulary until it decides it wants to live on the little patch of dirt you so lovingly prepared for it.
