Even an untended garden gone completely wild would be a much better option.
| I'm in the process of completing a major rear garden make-over - the main
| aim being to make the garden as maintenance free as possible (because I
| *hate* gardening!).
| I sent off for information on 'NoMow' artificial lawns recently and,
| their head office is not far from where I live, their sales manager came
| around with a display pack. It looks very real and, although not cheap
| (just under £20 per square metre all-in), would mean no more mowing,
| weeding, or watering, for 10 - 15 years. It's a lot easier to put down
| proper turf (just like putting down a carpet actually!) -and there are no
| worries about the turf not 'taking' and dying off.
| I've more or less decided to go ahead and order some but: anyone used this
| stuff and have any comments about it before I do so?
