Evergreen Lawn

Posted: 09/07/2012 at 15:37

i get green thumb in it costs me less £15 for the front lawn instead of 2 x tubs of evergreen at £16.99 when i last bought some..  and they weed with stronger weed killer as chemicals can only be used by specialist people.. (not found in shop bought ones) and it works very fast..after 2 doings we had no weeds amazing it is green thick and lush.. and they come over 3 months.. then aireate and scarify twice a year.. lawn never been better..

That sounds like 1976 ;- )

I remember that one! Didn't it last 2 years 75 & 76? I do love the sun, but for me ideal summer would be rain between 2 am and 5am, 18 -25 degrees and blue sky with a few fluffy clouds all day. Smog all day urrghh that would be awful. Another reason why plants and trees should be a compulsory part of any town and city planning


that is how i see summer being.. rain at night and max temp of 23 for me during the day with fully clouds.. actually i would hte whole year to be like that with lower temperature around 20 for winter.. be nice.

Isn't a thankyou in order?
