I think you can wait just a bit longer before you go out there with the lawn mower :o)

It'll be lovely when it does come up though! Maybe the next time you take a picture it will be with a lawn mower - or a goat?

Ar thats sad It would be great if it worked that quick. I would go back and asked for a refund LOL

Looks like you did a great job preparing the area - nice and level! I think "lush lawn" was probably exaggerating, more likely is a slight green tinge - trade descriptions act?

Don't worry i put some grass seed down in a small patch about 3wks ago, did'nt think it was going to grow but the last 4-5days it as really taken off, every time i look at it, its grown.

My goodness - talk about a blank canvas! What other plans have you got for the garden?

Wow that is a good long garden, something to get your teeth into there, good luck with the grass.

Well, week three and spotted some random tufts, but then I guess that quote wont make a great advertising header.
