“Lazylawn North & East Manchester’s success with Gabrielle Blackman, the designer we worked with on BBC’s ‘DIY SOS’, prompted a phone call for us to help out on Ricochet’s Channel 5 programme ‘Cowboy Builders’, where Gabrielle was now working. Apparently a builder had let a family down really badly and they wanted the help of the community. We jumped at the chance of providing our service. Even though we scheduled to carry out our 1 day installation, we arrived to find that nothing was prepared for our part of the project and the film crew weren’t there! However, now that we’d made the effort to visit the site, we might as well just get stuck in and apply our knowledge to provide a solution. We concreted the yard, altered and made good to the manhole and made sure the base was ready for the next day’s work. The following day we completed the installation as usual. A hug from Gabrielle and a massive thanks followed and we were on our way to the next installation!”
The programme was shown and the family just loved the grass!The LazyLawn team left the Rashid’s with a no mud no mess solution, and with a space for the 2 young boys to practices there football skills without the worry of destroying the lawn!
