Got a bucket of fertiliser off my father in law earlier,gonna sew it out 2Moro by hand as donít have a spreader,should be ok if I scatter equally right?? Should I soak the lawn first,always thought farmers wanted rain before they put it on fields. Then continue to water few times 2Moro and each day then??

Itís not overly long but maybe should cut it first,maybe rake away moss and loose stones etc,spend hour or two doing some prep.

Maybe il do a daily blog,audience seems to be there for it  ;D ;D

How did you get on with the fertiliser? Got a few buckets myself and thinking of getting it on to green it up a bit. All moss/fog gone so just left with a few thin/bare patches

Itís getting there slowly,I wouldnít have great patience tho lol. Near two weeks from I raked it to within an inch of its life,sewed grass seed and fertiliser,water it daily as there had been very little rain,not sure if I should be watering it more tho,can you over water grass in weather like this??

Gonna let it grow fairly long,maybe take a light cut off it and ket clippings stay on it,heard this may help,stay tuned....
I await with excitement your next update  :D

Might have to try this.

 I bought a spreader and bags of fertilizer weeks ago. Spreader was a complicated tool to assemble but I neednít have bothered as the fertilizer still hasnít arrived..

You will take handy money for that spreader then lol Iím out all morning at my lawn messing about with it,pulling weeds,raking moss,lifting stones.might get more top soil from my brothers site and fill in few low spots around posts etc gonna give it a cut then and strim after my 1.00pm tea break and water it,maybe chance the fertiliser by hand 2moro or go get miracle grow/lawn seed

Really not sure but her dad is into the farming and had a ton bag in the shed so I just filled a bucket,will rob another bucket if need be lol. Everyone online is saying to buy a spreader etc but itís a small area,think il chance by hand or maybe try make some kinda device to spread it.

Will try keep lawn watered for the next while,might do prep work like I said before,maybe use pitch fork break up the ground a bit to allow fertiliser to penetrate the soil,I know nothing about gardening but Iím one of them pricks that will try anything once lol

Yes much more effort put into front of house by contractor as itís on show and in my case attached to another house,back garden I have filled buckets of stones off it around the fence edge,also tried to make holes in garden before I threw down garden seed and every time I drove fork in it seemed to hit something hard.

Cut the small rush clumps out at the stump one day,tried to get root and all and filled hole with top soil taken from a site my brother is building on. Seeds havenít really done anything yet a week later,possibly crap quality or need more time. Few handfuls of fertiliser help??

Bought a turnkey house last year,lawn at the front has grew out pretty well but the back lawn hasnít had the same progress,it had far more stones in it and is likely full of hard fill,broken pavers etc underneath that contractor wanted rid off on site lol. Itís quite mossy and has small clumps of rush type grass through it. Would something like miracle grow and daily watering gradually help grass growth and suffocate the weed type areas??

Any of the vilamoura visitors above golfers?? Would love to head to it or the algarve for a few days golfing,see loads of deals all over fb but would rather hear it first hand of someone. The other half has no interest in golf but she could lie at the pool maybe lol

Yes thatís how I see it too,junior double header on the Saturday I guess is only available option or a round of league games in junior on the sat and champ the following week. But I think I heard junior/intermediate final is 6th oct so maybe teams would want two weeks to plan for it

Anyone hazard a guess at the fixtures for next weekend?? Are we likely to have 2 junior semis,2 intermediate semis and 4 senior quarter finals all in the one weekend??

In terms of spending/money on such trips what do you find works best?? only so much cash you really wanna take with you on long trips...travellers cheques easily cashed in hotels/casinos??? debit cards at atm's have fee's im guessing,the rate for sterling to dollars is crap also. what about a post office type money card,top it up and use it when u can and have additional cash for tipping/gambling etc??
