Then I started the weeding process....I don't believe in weed killer and beside you still have to remove all the dead weeds later, so up they have roots and all. Click on the photos for a larger view any time.
My son, Ryan borrowed the work tray truck and helped me pick up 50 sq meters Monday night - that's about a tonne. We unloaded it Monday night and I layed it Tuesday and then got back to the weeding...which took me till Friday to finish.
So early Saturday morning they picked up another 85 sq meters and Stephen and I layed the rest.....before he went off to play golf.
It looks spectacular...if I may say so... I left gaps in the laying to save money and this turf is buffalo grass which spreads really well so in no time it'll be all over GREEN.
Our garden is a tropical one as we live in Queensland, northern Australia so you have to grow plants with varied leaf shapes and colours.
We have two huge mango trees and banana trees
I gather all sorts of plants to give colour to the gardenI miss my garden in Townsville a lot but know that one day I'll be living back there and be able to enjoy it and tinker whenever I have the urge....till then I'm adding to my collection in pots. Cheers and I hope you enjoyed visiting my garden. Robyn
