Oh, summer of 2019, it may have ended last week but we’re still lusting after the lawns it produced. With a helping hand of our products, you sent in your Before & After photos to show the transformation your lawns went through, and we couldn’t be more amazed with the results!
With that in mind, let’s take a look at just some of the lovely lawns you had this summer and meet the people behind them. It was hard to pick with so many great lawns to choose from, so grab a cuppa while you scroll through some of our favourites!
Ray the early bird!
Let’s begin where it all started, when Ray, who is 87 and partially sighted, led by example and got his seed down in April so that he could spend the rest of the summer enjoying it. However, it wasn’t an easy feat and he had to put down two tons of topsoil to a part of his garden that had suffered badly from the drought and was dried out. Fast forward to May, and all his hard work had paid off! Ray said at the time: ‘I am really pleased with the result, as after all a good lawn is the basis of a nice garden and I get great pleasure out of it’. We couldn’t agree more!
Matthew is a superstar!
It’s pretty much a given that good results will come from SUPERSTAR: Back Lawn, but when paired with our QUICK RELEASE: Spring / Summer fertiliser, they might just be the best results yet! Matthew transformed his drought-damaged lawn and brought it right back to life using our products. He also nabbed himself a discount code for future use for sharing these with us. Everyone’s a winner!
Josh’s horticulture hobby!
Josh shared his Before & Afters with us, and he’d done such a good job we asked him if he would like to join our Pro Club. He said that he wasn’t a professional gardener, he just knows his stuff and as a teen, it’s his hobby! We were so impressed with the results he created using our SUPERSTAR: Back Lawn. Since then, Josh gets in contact with us on our Instagram whenever he has a question, but we suspect that soon enough with his enthusiasm he’ll be answering them for us!
Sam’s lawn is back in business!
Sam tagged us on Instagram in his Before & After photos, saying ‘After some top-quality seed mix ad expert advice from The Grass People, the back lawn is back!’. We’re so glad Sam’s family can once again enjoy their lawn with a helping hand from FAMILY: Kids and Pets.
No more shady business for Sam!
Yep, we have another Sam who now has a fantastic lawn, who also sent his photos to us on Instagram. Sam said ‘I’ve always had problems growing grass down the right side with shade of the fence but 28 days later and it’s never looked better! Mixture of superstar and steadfast shade with the summer slow release! Thanks and certainly buying from you in the future!’. See, a shaded lawn doesn’t have to be a problematic one if you use the right seed!
Kim masters her clay soils!
Kim is what we like to call an early adopter! We had lots of requests from our customers for a grass seed mixture specifically for clay soils, and Kim was one of the first to try it when we launched it in early summer. The results speak for themselves, but Kim had some words to say too: ‘Our clay based lawn really suffered last year and didn't recover in Spring. We used the Clay Master Lawn Seed and now have a thick, green lawn. Thank you so much.’ And thank you Kim, for the amazing Before & After’s!
Keith’s keen on our seed!
Keith bought some of our SUPERSTAR: Back Lawn to fill in a former flower border and emailed us to let us know how impressed he was after trying some not-so-impressive grass seed: ‘After my previous experience with a well-known garden centre brand, I was beginning to doubt my gardening abilities. Your grass seed is obviously far more superior.’ There’s no miracles or empty promises here, our grass seed mixtures are expertly picked and blended to give you the best results possible, just look how well that border filled in!
I think we can all agree that whether you’re 87 shovelling 2 tons of topsoil, or a teenager with a keen interest and hobby, a well-kept lawn is something we can all delight in. We love to see your Before & After photos, and if you have some you’d like to share, every customer featured here was given the offer of a discount code / free wildflower seed for their photos.
