I confess to being rather precious with my own lawn and am old fashioned enough to think it is important to have a nice one to set off the much more important garden plants. In another life I would love to make an ecological lawn but for many gardeners a weedy lawn is just an excuse for neglect.
If it might give Red Dahlia hope I have seen many beautiful lawns achieved just by regular mowing and careful management. I am featuring my friend Peter's lawn on my blog this Wednesday. It was never sown or turfed, he just mowed- and fertilised, controlled weeds and things!
I do like Higgy's lawn!
