The lawn is Geoff’s domain! He has an electric scarifier 😂

Neil cuts mine and has actually offered to do it but I wanted him to get on with painting the front fence, more fool me 😂 I used to have an electric one but it took up so much space in the shed that I sold it 🙄 @joanboston

Do you leave some of the moss for the birds ? I often see them pecking at my grass which is mainly moss !!!

I never manage to get it all out, try as I may. The sparrows like pecking the wood from my trellises for their nests 🙄😂 @charlotte

Geoff had a week off to paint all the fences a few weeks ago. They look great

It makes such a difference doesn't it. We're still painting ours. We made a good start then the cold and winds started so it got put back. Started again today though but it feels like it's never ending @joanboston

Fortunately Geoff was off before the weather took a dive! Took him working all day six days to do front back and side. He was glad to go back to work for a rest😂

I know Sue, but I wanted to wait until everything had gone over so that I could pot the plants up as the whole lot needs doing. Eekkk @lilybee Time for plan B whatever that is 🙄😂

Are you laying a new lawn or is it all going to be plants? @pelly

comment
pelly

New lawn but hopefully slightly bigger borders. The front gardens where I live are all open so so many weeds blow in and it's got to the stage where I can't keep up with it. With a fresh start I'm hoping it will be easier @lilybee 🤔👍

This is a bit of the worst part since using the 4 in 1 treatment, it is shaded by next door's Conifer hedge. My job this morning was to scarify it (and the rest of the lawn) .

Look forward to the after Jane. We really need to get something done with ours. It's full of moss for the first time ever 😞 Dread the thought of getting the moss off and what it will look like 😱

I won't have a lot of grass left Sue 😂😂😂. Next job in two weeks is to scarify and after that re-seed, but it had to be done, we've not touched it since we moved in. I was going to do it last autumn, but never got round to it. @susanhumphrey333 😊😊😊
