Uneven lawn

Thanks All.


Yes, Fairy girl I think I was duped by the company I paid...Very impressive initially, but alas, no follow up service !!

I will try filling with soil and see how it goes.


thanks again..

Uneven lawn

Pleae could I get some advice on the best and most effective way to 'level out ' my lawn. 

I had it laid about two years ago, and mow it regularly but even after all this time. it is still  lumpy and uneven.

I have considered hiring a  manual roller but wonder if it would be better to hire an electronic version.

Please help

Many thanks

Thank you to you all for your suggestions, - the hydrangea or pyracantha seem to be the plants that could do the trick...I will let update you on the results.

Thanks again.

Thank you very much.. Yours looks incredible,, Is it planted in the ground or in a container?

Please could you suggest plants that could match the thread title that I can plant to grow up against the wall of the house, that (that,  at the moment at least) gets a lot of sun?

I did consider hydrangea but have now read on here that the flowers do not last that long in the sun...

Any ideas would be gratefully received.

I am replacing wooden logs aroung the perimeter of my garden, which is used as a 'soil retaining wall.

The current logs have been in situ for a period of thirteen years and have quite simply, decayed over that time.

I would be greatful if someone could advise me on whether a weed barrier of some sort would assist if placed in between the wood and the soil?

Or any alternative ides greatfully accepted !!!

Many thanks
