Our Lawn Is Forever Lush & Green

Our lawn is forever lush & green

Come spring, summer, winter or fall

It fills our eyes & beckons us with its call

Beholding it as though it’s always spring!

The green is lush, fresh & beautiful to behold . . . changing not with the seasons. It’s tolerant of heat & rain without pain of due care & attention. It’s virtually free of maintenance, saving you both energy & water, fertilisers or mowing. No need to worry about winter weeds or fighting against its vigorous summer growth. In fact, it remains perpetually young & beautiful . . . could be that longevity & perpetual youth are not impossible after all!

Let’s hear directly from the horse’s mouth:

Unlike the well-known variety of Winter Green, Santa Ana, Kikuyu or Matilda Buffalo which take years to establish with lots of care & attention, you can install & establish me virtually over night. Like your faithful mate, I will stay that way for years to come giving you much joy & pleasure. No betrayal, no let down, just how reliable can I be.

Shade or sun I remain consistent giving you fun. Apart from its tolerance of heat & shade, water or drought, I feature less so even with wear & tear.

Just don’t be unduly upset when the team of workmen comes to establish me on your ground. They come with the machinery & equipment, bobcat & compactor, loads of cracker dust with me in two rolled up format in the trailer. They dIg up the ground, level it, remove all unwanted rocks or stones, fill the ground up with cracker dust, level it & compact the ground upon which I shall lay for years to come.  Your heart might ache when your rose plants have to be relocated. It’s like blowing up a dust storm before calm sets in.

Slowly & surely I make my appearance & with a twinkle I am established with landscaping & lots of black mulch for the roses & plants to further enhance my good looks.

When you think of the years ahead that you’ll be enjoying the pleasure of such a mate, the cost of establishing me as your front lawn or backyard, or as putting green becomes a very affordable project. My young neighbour looked over the fence & said, “I’m beginning to get sick cutting the lawn.”

When thinking of going my way in installing your everlasting green front lawn, go for Westregent Pty Ltd & rest assured of qualitative & quantitative service. Before engaging them, I rang up 4 or 5 other companies for quotes. All promised to come to my place to measure up the requirements & to give me their prices. Only one showed up, took the measurement & promised to call back with the quote the very next day. He never did. I rang up the manager who told me that his man was unwell & would personally look into the matter. I waited for a service that never materialised. A satisfied customer is your best advertisement!.

They came highly recommended by my friend Max.

I” may be artificial

But “I” am not superficial

In every way “I” am genuine & special

Fulfilling your both leisure & pleasure.

Perth is most fortunate, weatherwise that is, for gardening.

It’s a love & hobby one can pursue throughout the year.


Gardening is both refreshing & fulfilling. The gardener will find joy in watching the plants grow, the flowers bloom, the changing hues & colours through different seasons of the year. For the organic fanatics these days, nothing like planting your own greens, herbs or vegetables. Gardening provides an avenue to good health & wealth.

Through the years, I have found that you have to establish a good daily routine when it comes to tending to your lawn, flowers & plants. Any neglect or deviation from that routine, the war against weeds & wild growth will result. As it’s said, you reap what you sow.

Been experimenting with some guidelines of my own and came out with this helpful formula in establishing good habits & routine. There are seven days in a week. I always like to reserve a day when I can really do something different or play my favourite golf.

To get by this time-table formula, I have established an ACRONYM for the word GARDEN:

G Grass Cutting                            Monday

A Attention                                  Tuesday

R Revitalisation (Fertilization)  Wednesday

D Digging/Weeding                      Thursday

E Elegance & Beauty                  Friday

N New Plants, Flowers                 Saturday

Everything works according to a system, the engines or our bodies. Working in a haphazard way will not generate efficient results. Once a system is established, it becomes naturally easy to follow through, especially when it’s simple and basic.

Things always seem insurmountable when you attempt to tackle them all at one go. But if broken into bits, then it’s relatively simple to accomplish most things. Bit by bit, no matter how huge, they say that even an elephant can be consumed! Have a work list itemised in terms of priority.

On the whole, nothing beats a good work system. Take one day at a time for each activity above and ENJOY it.

Gardening should be pleasurable

In more ways than one enjoyable

It should not be viewed as a chore

Lest you’d find the activity a bore.
