Given the state of our lawn in early Febuary, after all that rain, I'm pleased that it's well on the way to recovery. But there's always a few places where it gets damaged by squirrels trying to bury nuts or other animals having a dig,etc., The righ-hand side of this lawn meets the York stone path. It tends to creep over the edge but this can be tidyed up by running a strimmer vertically down it. It only takes a couple of minutes. But where it meets the small patio behind the shed I let it grow a bit though still edge it. So a few times a year it creeps a few inches onto the patio. I can cut this off with a serrated knife. These strips will have roots, so are ideal for any small patches like this one I repaired today. No I can hardly see it either.
