Sport 38: Winter 2010
Ingredients for a Flat Lawn
Source thirty cubic metres of earth, two rakes, a sprinkler,
sturdy wheelbarrows and as many pecs as you can muster.
Buy 500 grams of superphosphate and two-and-a-bit packets
of grass seed, a hose and one kilo of sulphate of ammonia.
Hire a mother of a rotary-hoe (we're talking a quarter tonne)
and barrow four cubic metres of topsoil on to the site.
Fashion a lawn-roller from the 300 millimetre diameter post
you've stashed under the house with the other off-cuts.
Then hope for even seed distribution and clement weather
and that the hose will stretch all the way to your next big idea.
