We thought of the false stuff, rung a few numbers out the phonebook but people seem against it? I would be interested in anyones experiences of it or we dig it all up and start again....

We spoke to a local garden design company who came out and quoted for us. Seems they're getting more requests for it than ever before. Ended up being way too expensive for our budget plus the docs finally relented and gave OH a steroid jab to see him through the summer so he's now able (willing is a different story!) to mow the lawns.
