December 2015.

Its summer and a little late to be laying a new lawn, but here goes.  I have just finished making hot compost, and have used 9 wheelbarrow loads of it and 8 bags of aged cow manure to cover the prepared ground and embed the drip irrigation system.

The turf has been ordered and will be delivered in about a weeks time.  I will spray its roots with aerated compost tea before laying, and meanwhile I will be busy keeping the soil and compost moist and protected with shade cloth so the microbes can get busy preparing the soil.
