fun with garden turf


I bought a piece of turf at B&Q for £2 58 and made a grass ball [I remembered having seen this done on tv a while ago]
I had lots left over so decided to make a smaller one.
with still plenty left so I decided on a fun front lawn!!
great fun
grandkids love them
they also love these feet out of Poundland.

How did you manage to get it to stay in a ball shape ? - Very clever. :o)

2 hanging baskets[wire ones] line with turf, pack to rim with compost then wire them together.
it is quite fiddly but worth the effort.
I was going to hang it up but it is TOO heavy
it is great fun giving it a "haircut" once a week!!

I was reading your latest blog, and spotted this one in your archive - I'll just have to have a go at the turf hanging basket might plant some daisys in it as well. - great idea:-)
