The Great Landscaping Challenge - Stage 5...and FINAL!

Considering the world did not end on 21st December...we awoke on the 22nd to the faint smell of cow shit still floating around the backyard, thanks to the overcast warm days, and of course it was LAWN DAY!!

Brother B, Mum and Dad arrived at 8am and with the help of Hubby started spreading the top soil in the backyard ready for the grass to arrive at 9-10am.

When the top soil was evenly spread, the yard already looked fantastic!!

At 9am the Sapphire turf arrived. I decided on Sapphire as it is a good grower and has a thin soft leaf, which is good for kids....and so the turf laying began.....

Now that we have the lawn I am not sure what we are going to do with ourselves on the weekends! Oh I know, watch Little Miss 4 play outside on the lawn!!

Thanks to Brother B, Mum, Dad and Hubby for getting me a lawn by Christmas :) Not sure what I would do without you guys.

Did you get what you wanted for Christmas?
