We've got a lawn like that Nut, not as large as yours but just as colourful and the bees like ours too
Just watched GW - mmm - not for me I'm afraid. My father-in-law, however, would definitely give that lawn10 out of 10 (he's from Yorkshire too - so perhaps it's a generational / geographical thing...). Still, each to his own and I have to applaud the guy for his dedication.
The bees have been all over our lawn this afternoon as well - busy, busy busy. Lovely
Well , at least his long suffering wife knows where he is. He's not in the pub or the bookies, although maybe sometimes she wishes...
Topbird, your garden sounds like my sort of garden
Just watched this while having the second coffee of the day. I loved the gravel garden with its colours and textures and contrasting forms and letting things seed where they're happy. It's what I try to do but on deep, rich, fertile loam so constant refereeing of weeds and thugs.
Not so keen on the perfect lawn though. Much rather spend my time on plants and the veggie plot. Our grass is a green foil for the beds and a playground for dogs now and Possum and friends when she was a bairn. it's also riddled with mole tunnels and holes and a fair amount of daisies, clover and speedwell. I don't mind as long as it's green.
I wonder if he lines up everything in the cupboards and his shed in nice straight lines.....
Each to their own, but I don't see the point of a lawn that's only for looking at.
Although here, most of time you'd need waterproofs to lie on the lawn
Love a perfectionist, as for the gravel garden a waste of good gravel and space!
What's the next craze to look like!
I would love to have a neat lawn but it's always full of mole hills and holes that voles and lizards use.
