Planting The best time to establish a non-grass lawn is in early autumn or spring. Plants such as chamomile, thyme and alpines are usually available as established plants in small pots, although some nurseries will supply smaller plants in large plug trays. 1 – Where established plants are being used it may be possible to divide the clump into several rooted sections. This not only saves money, but also the plants will go further. 2 – Space the plants out in staggered rows and plant them approximately 15–20cm (6–8 in) apart.

There are many different types of material that can be laid across or around a lawn to form a path. The material you select will depend on what the path is going to be used for. It is even possible to continue the lawn theme by creating a grass path to run across those areas of the garden that are not covered by actual lawn. Grass paths Grass paths look very natural and are lovely to stroll along on a summer’s day. They are also an ideal way of linking two areas of the garden together, of dissecting a large bed or dividing a kitchen garden into smaller plots.

By crossing the area you wish to cultivate in two or three directions, you can create a neat finish to an even depth in relatively little time. Make sure that you rotavate to the same depth across the whole site: if you rotavate some areas much deeper than others, not only is there a chance that the grass will grow unevenly, but the ground may settle at different levels once the lawn is laid. This is not only unsightly, it can be inconvenient if not dangerous, depending on what the lawn is used for.
