The lawn running along the stream, in front of the bedroom pod has come on in leaps and bounds. We decided to hydro-seed it and the seed was quite dormant until things warmed up a little and pow, she hasn’t looked back. Thick, luscious locks without a weed in sight.
We worked with the Shane and his team at Dingo Groundworx – they were awesome. Very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. They came in and scraped out the crappy muck that was on the ground, and set the levels. Then spread about 100mm of top soil, with another 100mm of lawn mix on top, before spraying on the seed.
Now the grass is about 60mm long I need to give the lawn its first cut. It’s still pretty soft underfoot though with all that new soil and the amount of rain that we keep getting. So I bought a Flymo mower off Trade Me and plan to walk around the lawn edges, while the Flymo floats over the top – stopping any foot or wheel marks ruining the lawn.
Then hopefully, once the rain stops and a crust forms, she’ll get nice and solid over summer. Plus the root system will bind everything together.
Have also just seeded out behind the living pod, so looking forward to seeing that sprout soon too.
