    Easiest way to apply granular feed

    They eat there own poo to digest the celulose so it shouldn't do them any harm. Let your boy have a whiff of it and threaten to soak his football boots in it if the lawn gets damaged again :heehee:

    Clueless ! Turf or seed ?

    As to mowing as i can't use a tradition mower even a self propelled one, I have to use a ride on ( yardman dx70 ). If I seed my lawn am I stumped from using a ride on, or is turf better in this case.

    Help me choose a lawnmower

    @2nd_bassoon , Black and Decker do the trimmer + a City Deck , which turns the trimmer into a small lawn mower. So you get two for the price of one to help storage and carry weight :blue thumb:
