Now, you may remember I worked very hard at lifting the old turf off our back lawn at our old house...
...well yesterday I spent the day lifting sods and carefully placing them in a weird sort of puzzle on the bare ground.
I was told by the nice man who delivered to me from Perfect Turf that I should lay the turf round the edges of the garden and work to them - that way I'd get a nice clean edge along the border, rather than a jagged line where I'd cut them in.
I started nice and quickly, I think it was because it was a new and exciting job that I'd never done before. Either that or someone had secreted a strange chemical into the turf, cos either way it seemed fun!
I decided (all by myself!) that I was going to lay the turfs in a brick formation, this seemed effective and gave me straight lines that I could work to. I hadn't bothered to set out wires or string, mainly because I couldn't be bothered - but mainly because I didn't have any wire or string to set out.
Now then, I was a little stuck for something to cut the turf with, but I found in a kitchen draw a table knife, so with this in hand I set out to trim that turf!
I had a break to go pick Kane up from school, then I went straight back to the matter in hand.
After finishing the job at last, I plugged the hose in and gave the whole lot a lovely long drink, to give it a good start in life.
