Lawn revival got me thinking

Posted: 11/01/2014 at 00:18

My front lawn is awful, full if weeds and green but in summer turns purple with yellow due to weeds including dandilion!!! I have tried getting out there with a knife believe me. So question is what to do. This year I watered in verdol I think and nothing happened at all. Do I try again or get a company to square it up to kick me off. 

 

What costs are we talking for companies, do any of you use???

Just seen a stunning looking flower on the garden revival programme called a cleome. After a quick look they seem to be very tall 3-4 ft. So does anyone know of shorter varieties. What are opinions, are they worth growing???
