  • Yes Freddies Dad, why not I might do this to begin with being an easy one.

    Get rid of lawn? With concrete or scree maybe?

    Local gardeners usually go at £15/hour which might be a bit pricey for us.

    There's always a goat option. image

    How about Sheep?? - I'm not joking, offering your services as a Fosterer to the local Farm may well solve the lawn problem, and think of the joys of filling your freezer with all that lovely lamb. I have a friend who has successfully taken on 2 lambs every year and a retired ewe -Free lawn mowing and free meat.

    SOME ANIMAL SANCTUARIES FIND FOSTERERS OR ADOPTERS FOR GOATS, GEESE, RABBITS ETC.

    THEY USUALLY PAY VET’S BILLS FOR LIFE. NO FREE MEAT THOUGH, JUST A HAPPY ANIMAL.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • "Compost them and use them" - Got nothing to put it on Mike. No veg. No flowers. imageToo time consuming looking after them when you have two jobs.

  • Thanks. I thought about animals, but they come with poo and vet bills.

  • Thanks all. I think I'll leave the compost on the grass in one area whilst considering a meadow there later. Collect it in the family area and freecycle it.

    Oh options exhausted and such a waste! - Had you thought of offering local horticultural college project of turning your garden into a design project that would suit you and educate them?
