It arrived!


A photo from the other day when all the grass was removed.  Wednesday the new grass arrived as below in rolls on the back of a trailer ready to be place in position.


You just roll it along and place together.

Nearly finished.
The caravan you see where it's parked on one of the driveways.
With the grass all in place neatly it is rolled and watered, cut after about 6 weeks.

You can see where the first Erlicheer has come up on the left at the foot of the steps in the garden.

  1. Nice lawn-- nice neighborhood. I've always shot manual. I dislike auto making artistic decisions for me.

    1. Thanks.
      Manual is good, eyesight isn't the best to focus but I'm getting there..

    1. It is, but it's his profession, horticulturist and a landscape gardener, has degrees...so it's easy for him now.

    1. It is Rosemary but easier because the rolls are one length as in a meter then another meter so not much had to be cut off..

  6. In a couple of weeks it even might be ready for mowing.
    Looks great.

    1. 6 weeks it will be Colin, not a good idea to mow before as mowing can pull roots out :)

  7. In no time at all, after some watering, out will come the mower. Good job, well done. :)

  8. The grass looks very nice, as does your home. I may think about some Earlicheer for my garden next year. But my track record with daffodils isn't great.

    1. Thanks River. My husband doesn't care for 'bulb's but I do and have managed to have a few in the garden :)
      Good luck with your bulbs when they are available.
