How to get the perfect lawn.

Evergreen Complete

The other week, Mrs Braddish came into Templetons Hardware and told me about her lawn.
“I want to have one of those striped lawns Derek” she said, “But I don’t know how to get one.”
I would think Mrs Braddish is in her late 60’s and it doesn’t surprise me, given her husband died a few years ago, that she has not enjoyed the beautiful experience of a perfect front lawn for a while.
“Now, do I need different kind of fertilisers for light green and dark green stripes?” she asked.
Now I know I have taken some abuse from readers of my mumblings who accuse me of taking advantage of people, but sales in the retail sector are slow, and therefore I should be forgiven.
“Yes Mrs Braddish” said I. “I would use some Evergreen Complete for one row and then alternate with Westland Lawn Feed and Weedkiller on the other.”
She seemed happy enough as she left the shop for the bright sunshine that welcomed her outside, and I popped her money in the till alongside not very much.
I passed Mrs Braddish’s home yesterday, and looking at the lawn, I just felt a tiny bit guilty, before popping off to The Cross Keys to spend her money on a pint.
