    Hello all

    I hope you are well.

    I am looking for some advice, if I may.

    I am going to have my Driveway and Path done in late July, it is currently just a Concrete Slab and I am having it done in Bound Resin.

    As part of the work, there are five Indian Sandstone Setts that are going to be removed which are shown below:

    A new line of Setts are going to run level with the outer edge of what, at the moment, is the paving, this is also being removed as it is being replaced with the new Bound Resin, this will leave a gap between the Lawn and the new line of Setts of approximately 1000mm x 150mm.

    In the Front Garden a part of the Lawn is going to be removed to create a curve to the Front Door.

    This is getting long winded, hold on, I am getting to the point, honest :)

    If I cut out a section of the Lawn in the Front Garden to the size I need, what would be the best way to keep it alive for a few days until I can transplant it into the gap?

    I was thinking of just laying it out on a partially shaded section of Border and keeping it watered, would that work?

    Thanks in advance

    Kevin

    Yes that would be the way to go kevin , just make sure its well watered it not the best time to be doing turfing job and with it being a small piece more prone to drying out.

    Hello @perkins

    Thanks for the reply.

    I will place it on a cooler part of the garden and keep it watered.

    Thanks

    Kevin
