mound lawns

hello everyone im a'newbie' to the site! Im in process of landscaping another section of my garden this spring and fancy a mound lawn as featured in march issue of G.W. I wondered if anyone has tried this and if they had turfed the lawn, which is what I plan to do??

    Hello EvergreenQueen

    Lovely idea. It crossed my mind but I was put off by all the earth moving required. I'd have turfed, any rain could have washed the seed to the bottom before it germinated.

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • thanks N thats something i hadnt thought of. I have lots of soil to remove to get the lawn flat so the mound would be easier in that respect!

    As someone who once had to mow a mound-dont know what you are looking at-but bear that in mind-it is not straightforwardimage

  • Yes S have considered the mowing bit and know how easy it is to scalp a" not very flat lawn"!!

    hi evergreen there was a gardening program a while ago on someone  with a lawn mound mind you it looked like a giant ant hill and when they stood on top,well they could see for miles also all the neigbors gardens, so let us know how you get on.very interesting.

  • Hi chica missed that one but not planning a massive mound anyway, more likely to be my very watered down version!!
