    Although I dislike it, artificial turf does have its place. My sister had a tiny circle of grass in her garden, with two small dogs it was completely ripped up. Her artificial turf is tough and looks ok. It's must be ecologically better than paving or concrete.

    Food for lawn? Food for thought forlorn!

    Great to hear they have helped.Don’t think any grass type that’s here in the U.K. can withstand drought. Nature of the beast really.

    Grass not germinating.

    I had given the pot of seeds I planted out a couple of trims with the kitchen scissors before planting it. And the roots were through the bottom of the pot.

    If it's a sand and grit mix down to 3 inches then soil, I'd just seed it. Yeah I know the 'official' advice, but I've seen it work well. As long as you can keep it moist and fed, grass will thrive...

    need advice on a long hosepipe (like 40/50m) and sprinklers

    There is no loss of pressure but there will be a reduction in flow. Over the lengths we are talking about, not enough to notice.
