A long way to go before it's 'high quality' Verdun - the work on the front lawn is repairing the damage done by three builder's skips parked on it for 9 months when we first moved in!!!
Most people would probably have had it stripped and turfed or at least re-seeded, but I have a pension to look after now and anyway, I like a challenge! If I tell people on here that they don't need to spend a fortune on a new lawn, then I'd better practise what I preach.
And the bees like the clover and new turf wouldn't have that
Well, after the mug of soup and a sandwich I went out and sowed a row of Baby Gems and a row of Oriental Red Mustard - stood back to admire my handiwork and the rain started again - only soft summer rain so really it's just what's needed to water the grass seed in, but it means I'm back indoors noodling with you lot again.
