  3. Now is the best time for turf ...usually plenty of rain to save you watering plus not as hot .
    Most do it in mid summer as it's easier to work dry soil then get the hose and sprinkler bit of a faff for the customer .

    Seed can be now as there is still a bit of warmth to set it off....anything like last winter you could do it right through winter .

  7. I dug my back garden lawn up a few years back and got raised beds for veg and flowers. Front garden lawn replaced with variety of shrubs, perennials and annuals, great for the bees and flutterbys.

    In contrast I have a near neighbour who has plastic lawn and plastic flowers and even plastic ivy up the walls.

  8. Go for it snots. Wayne Rooneys new turf was very successful. You’ll soon get that old pony tail back.

  11. Lol. I am. Tried seed, but not great success. Next door had Mr Turfer in, and it was hassle free...

    I have a neighbour with a plastic lawn. He’s so lazy even that gets weeds in it, he just replaces it every five years o_O
     
  13. AstroTurf needs pressure washing every few years to blow all the rotted leaves out of it. I tend to mix in a quarter of a pint of whisky in the pressure washer detergent reservoir.













    It gives the AstroTurf lawn that 'half cut' look....
     
  14. Now.
