The long game
My name is Dan, I'm 28 and I am new to gardening. Eight months ago I moved into a gorgeous cottage on the Caerhays Estate near St Austell, after a month of cleaning and redecoration. But that's a story for another forum/website.
The garden is quite big (I'll see if i can upload a pic)
The grass hadn't been cut in two years and its a blank canvas.
It was left over the winter and in march i attacked it with a strimmer as it was way too long for a mower. I left it to recover for a month and then attempted to tame it with my other halves, cousins, lawn mower. After 3 long hours (the mower is a tad old) we have a semi-respectable lawn
For those studying these pictures you will notice that i found a shed (former outside toilet) underneath the ivy.
I have more images and things that i have done in front of the house but i thought i would show you my lawn first and introduce you to my "Long Game".
Hope you enjoy and i will no doubt call on you expertise soon.
