Immaculate Edges

0 comment

I spent a lot of time in February and March defining and properly edging the lawn to set the borders for this year. So a few days ago, when I finished mowing the grass, I still wasn’t quite satisfied with the way the edges looked – they were still scruffy.

Now call me obsessive-compulsive, but it only took a few hours to around all the border edges with a pair of kitchen scissors, trimming the grass to give a real sharp edge to the lawn.

I think it looks very neat and perhaps the time was well spent if you’re opening for NGS or expecting a visit from the RHS, but perhaps not when it’s cold, wet, muddy and getting dark (as it was in my case).

I'm Sunil Patel, this is me. I created the Garden at 13 Broom Acres and I open it to visitors. I also bake and write blog posts giving a "behind the scenes" look into what it's like to maintain such a garden.

Visit the blog, then come and visit the garden. We can have a good sit-down, a jolly chinwag and a relaxing cup of tea with a sinfully generous slice of home made cake.
