That is actually. Any tips for keeping to so green? My lawn is a disgrace, especially the bit I use to wash the bikes on :lol:

looks like too much clover and weed in there to me.

tips for lawn...
cut not too short regularly, say 25mm.
Use a quality cylinder mower!
Scarify at beginning of growing season.
Airate lawn buy taking little nuggets out.
Fill nuggets with sandy stuff
apply fertaliser/weedkiller regularly
Water regularly
Use correct grass for useage and sun/shade

et voila! easy see :D
