Old Tennis Court!!!

Posted: 08/03/2016 at 11:24

OP has said...

We've recently moved in to a new house. There is a great rectangular lawn which I believe used to be a Tennis court. It seems to be 60% moss 40% thin grass, so I went over it with a fork this afternoon (to try and improve drainage) and the topsoil seems to be incredibly thin (say 3"/75mm). I presume that's the old Tennis Court gravelly surfacing underneath.

I would have to agree with Pansy, spiking it is not going to be the answer, I think it will need digging up, fresh top soil and re seeded or turf. There are no short cuts.IMO.

Breaking news - I'm annoyed with the fibreglass liner so I will be removing it, enlarging the pond and putting in a liner instead!

I absolutely agree with you, the liner is far better, you can easily get the shape you want rather than digging every little bit underneath the fiberglass one, if they don't fit exactly they buckle.

I got mine from Bradshaws, long guarantee, and there is a 10% voucher off. 

Edited to add, the pond liner is black one side and brown the other so you can choose which way up you prefer it.

Never bored Richard, it would be nice if you could be our resident clematis expert.

if you do another link at any time if you just do a space after it, it will become a clickable link.

Dove, does WW use an iPad,? And if so I suppose she knows they benefit from being powered off and re booted? 

Our landline and Internet has been off this morning, checked it through the iPad, where they said its a fault on the line and to phone a certain number, not easy when the phones off!  The number they gave wouldn't work on mobile, not that we have any signal at the best of times, it came back on after about two hours.

they reckon we will only be able to get TV through the Internet soon, no aerial or sky dish any more, they will have to buck their ideas up before then, no phone no TV.
