We have a similar one (it's really useful) although I think the timber part of ours is slightly weightier.  It's fine in our sheltered garden in Norfolk, but if your garden is exposed to strong gusty winds I'd find a way to fix it - maybe metal brackets securing it to the wall or fence - or maybe fix a 'floor' across the bottom and lay some concrete blocks or similar on it perhaps?

This is ours

Oh, no it doesn't work for iPhones - can you upload the pics to a photo-hosting site and post the link?  Or have you access to a tablet or laptop or ............... almost anything but an iPhone?

The site is undergoing some changes and they're going to make it much more compatible with phones etc, but that doesn't help you and your lawn today ... sorry

make sure BM doesn't come along and berate you for cruelty to cabbage whites.

Not being cruel to them Hosta - there's three straggly plants left over still in the modules in a corner of the garden where such things get put and then overlooked - they're welcome to them if they like

Shall we send a magic carpet for Topbird - do you think she's ready to rub her magic knickers yet?

That's done it - the purple sprouting broccoli is all safely under netting - that'll keep Peabrain and his woodpigeon pals away from them - it's also seriously peeing off the Cabbage Whites who know there's some brassicas there but they can't get at them. 

I carefully inspected every leaf first, applied an organic spray for the whitefly that were flying about and removed every little Cabbage White egg - they should be ok now - fingers crossed. 

Where I enter one off validation code?

Pat, I usually start to melt at anything over 22C - there's no way I could live where you do
