Feed n Weed Experiment

Used feed n weed for the first time today, trying to build up a good root system and suppress those weeds and stinging nettles. Bought a 12ltr spreader from B&Q along with Evergreen 4 in 1. After loosing some of it trying to get the right setting i just managed to cover the whole garden but the bag i had was for a 200sqm lawn but mine is fractionally bigger, more 300sqm. 
I'll reapply in 2 weeks and then i'll start looking into autumn feed.

Lack of motivation.

I'm taking the day off from my garden renovation because I am just lacking the motivation today. I know it's a poor excuse and a gardener should always make the most of the inclement weather, but the driving force to continue with my ivy clearance for the patio eludes me.

I did manage to finish building the log store round the back while it was dry and i just need to get some tarpaulin to cover the front.

Rain almost stopped play

The sun came out for a good couple of hours, checked the lawn and it seemed pretty dry so i thought smeg it and cut the grass.
Minutes after putting the mower away this happened

 Its starting to look sexy, the brown patches are slowly greening up and i'll soon look into feed & weed and a spreader.
I've cleared some more from the bottom where the patio will be going but it's a slow and painful process as its just ivy roots.
