That Phanom

No point me telling you where to get in Udon then. Good luck, hope you have plenty of water, not really the time of year to be laying grass.

Why buy it? Just overlay your garden with top soil from the rice fields and stand back. Anything that grows you just mow. Eventually the weeds die and the grass will come naturally. Simple innit?

If you do that, what you will get is a lawn full of love grass (yaa-chaochu) Chrysopogon aciculatus. The prickly seeds stick to your shoes and socks and can penetrate your skin and in some cases cause extensive ulceration.

Those things are real buggers  almost as bad as jumping out of bed  barefoot on to an upturned UK plug !!!

All down to knowing when to mow. And the thing that's best about it is that I stop cutting in November let it die back and I get a lush lawn come the rains 6 months later. I have about a Rai of lawn area so I couldn't turf it. So doing what I did is the next best thing.

So you only have a lawn six months a year! not my idea of the perfect garden, we have about 2 Rai of lawns, for 6 months of the year they need minimum care, but they do need watering to maintain! We laid the "turf" ourselves, not a huge job and have greenery and dust free year round.

I choose not to water between November and May due to shortages in the water supply. If I choose to water I too would have lawn for 12 months of the year. I'm not the selfish kind that would wash his car during a drought just for appearances.  How sad you can't live without a lawn for 6 months of the year. What will the neighbours think? And who's to say what's 'perfect'.
