It's patchy and you can see where I stood on it 😅 but I've cut the new grass for the first time.. kinda anyway, with scissors 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤦 time to look for a cheep little mower. The cuttings will be used as mulch at my allotment 😍🌧️💚 it's temping to take the barrier down and let the dog go on but I think it needs a couple more weeks. #green #lawn

The lawn is doing great, there are a few patchy parts though where the seed didn't germinate. 15/06/19 it's been just over a month since I put the seed down, I'm not sure if I can now yet. 🤔

I would wait a bit.. You could let it flower and self seed then weed eat.. That area looks small enough not to use a mower till it fills in nicely! I'm a more plants less lawn type of gal tho 😃

Yeah I'm that way too @cyndi that's why I got rid of the decking but the dog loves grass 🤣 he's going to love it....😀 I'll probably end up putting some little borders in I recon 🤣 I haven't even got a mower yet I've just been using scissors on the tiny bit of lawn for now... I have a push mower at my allotment but don't fancy bringing it back and fourth all the time 😅

You could mix in all over that area some petgrass which is healthy for them to eat as well for breath and health. Since its just for the dog. No use wasting money on a mower i just use a batery powered weed eater. Quick and you can control how short ya want it to be to. I have one thats an edger as well with a flip of the pole .. You dog is gonna love his doggy zone lol.

@kimmy01 I did that at a house I lived at once. It was a small garden with a tiny piece of grass so I’d sit in the middle and trim away with my scissors ✂️ I had a Lovely lawn. 😁👍🏼

Yeah it should spread and it's all got seed heads on 😀 Its from my allotment as I'm weeding @Denise16 I just plan on filling as much as I can to this little patch on the left so my dog can do his business again in my garden 😂 the rest I will grow from seed after I get my new fence.

Before the dog I was planing on planting it all after taking down the decking but now I trained my puppy to pee on some artificial grass before we done the garden up we then got rid of it cos it was smelly and now he won't do his business in the back garden 🤣 I trained him to well. I will be making some skinny raised beds so he can't pee on things I want to eat but the rest of my veg is at my big allotment. I'm kinda looking forward for the green. 😁 @cyndi Plus the cut grass will be good mulch

(4th of March 2019) Making a start on the lawn just need to buy the seed next. Just this small patch for my dog before we get the new fence then I can do the rest after. 😊 Because I trained my dog to do his business on some fake grass and we got rid of it because it stunk and now he won't pee in the garden I have to take him out the front on the green. 😆😂😂😂🤣 (Can't wait to get my garden sorted this year!!!!!)
