Exactly he's free to do as he pleases. I just don't see the value in it.

Some would probably say the same if they were good at tiling/plastering and someone was going to pay someone to perform these tasks.

Not too bothered about my grass, but it doesn't look fantastic. I just give it a really short cut so as to not look proper ropey with the amount of weeds coming through.

Tiling is somewhat skilled work.

Cleaning the house, and watering the grass is not

I suppose that is subjective.. If you want a bowling green for a garden and a clinically clean house its hard fucking work..

It's not as simple as watering the grass.

Tiling isnt a skill. I did my entire onsuite in a weekend. I'd have a cleaner tomorrow but the misses dont want a stranger cleaning the house

My lawn is coming along ok. A few bare patches that I need to sort and I have been playing football on it too with my lad.

I put some Resolva Weed but not Lawn Killer on the several dandelions that have sprouted. Will see what happens.

Even doing that for 10 minutes makes James grass company more appealing.

Some progress. No Haimsey effort yet though. Still pretty patchy.

Well it's killing the weeds off and grass has survived lol. I was quite careful with it though and just sprayed it on the leaves like it said

I seem to have my weeds issue under control but the grass has taken a turn for the worse. On one side I have normal fine blade grass but on the other I have big patches of wide blade grass which looks dreadful if I'm honest; it grows faster than the rest too

The previous owners seeded a large area of the garden in early Spring last year but it's a bit sparse so I'm trying to thicken it up. I used some seed and feed to try and fill in some patches but all it's done is improve the grass that's already there as opposed to adding to the thin patches. Think it's a bit late now to starting seeding from scratch so that'll probably have to wait until next Spring now.

Similar-ish problem here. The feed & weed stuff has improved the already good grass but not killed the weeds or helped the weaker areas.
