We can all agree that lockdown 1.0 threw a lot at all of us – and whilst it could have dampened our spirits, we rose to the challenge of making the most of it!
As we stayed
home, our gardens became our sanctuaries, and the unusually warm weather from
March onwards really kickstarted our sowing season.
You kept us extremely busy this spring / summer and sent through your dramatic lawn transformations that we loved and shared on our socials. But we weren’t the only ones that loved them, our followers did too! So we let you decide who made the top 15 list for the best lockdown lawns of 2020 - did you make the cut?

Mark's miraculous lawn
Topping our list and coming in at number 1, it's Mark with 118 likes! You went wild for Mark's green carpet lawn - achieved using 2kg of our SUPERSTAR: Back Lawn and by overcoming a flood! Mark said at the time in hisFeefo review: ‘Definitely purchase grass seed again as our lawn was flooded in the winter and killed off most of the lawn so seeded all with The Grass People’s seed and have had superb results’. Whilst Mark's year didn't start too great with a flooded lawn, he was able to turn it around and we think you'll agree deserves first place for all his hard work!
Kevin is no stranger to taking care of his lawn, but even the best kept lawn needs a little bit of TLC! Kevin overseeded his lawn in preparation for summer using our STEADFAST: Ultra Shade andFine Finish seed. Apparently, you can improve upon perfection!
