|23rd July 2010. What we had.|
What we are seeking of course is perfection. We would like our lawn like the one below, lined with lavender to outline the boundary, and to separate the plantings behind.

First what we got was small 100mm lavenders growing out of black weedmat, with a prominent irrigation tube. 75 meters of it. Really ugly.

The Summer of 2012 and 2013 was a dry and hot, great for the lavender.

But end for now
