We Have Grass!

Last week, the first few blades of grass started poking through the soil and the new lawns have now really got a spurt on in the warmer weather.

This was the scene just 8 days ago...


And this is the scene today!


The lower lawn is taking a little longer to get going, hopefully the bare patches will start to fill in soon. I was out watering the lawns for ages last night in preparation for the hottest day of the year so far forecast for today.


The upper lawn seems to be fairing better and it shouldn't be long before those brown patches disappear.


We've left the far side of the lawn to grow wild, we've sewn loads of wild flower seeds which are just starting to pop up here and there. The flower bed on the near side has also been sewn with Canada Green Grass Seed but just the normal one, the lawns were done with seed and feed which might explain why they're doing so well.

Wow that certainly grew fast :) I hope you were abiding by the drought

Amazingly my grass is still lush down here on the Kent coast - but yes it was definately the hottest day of the year - 29deg here - ugh!!!

Hi Jennifer

The grass seed we used is called Canada grass seed and feed, you normally have to order it online as most shop do not stock it, but for once it does what it says on the packet!!
