Woo2, I lifted some old paving on the South side of my house, prepared the ground and lay a new lawn which struck and grew beautifully.
That was December five years ago, it has prospered ever since. It was a case of fitting the job in with the time I had from other duties so there was some trepidation but it worked.
My memory is of a very old acid plant being removed at ICI and then fenced off, we were told nothing would grow for ten years. Some of my lads working in the area said you better come and see this, they were looking through the fence at a sea of flowers and grasses, all weeds of course but it was exactly 18 months after demolition, you do not beat nature.
