. Very beautiful Portulaca & healthy grass in a well featured new garden.
. Don't you think the grass should now be cut to accelerate its horizontal growth/spread to quickly cover the gaps?
. Looks to be a new lawn;if an old one,what type of grass have you replaced & why ?

Hi thanks. Farrah first when i prepared the lawn soil i mixed some DAP before the grass was planted.Secondly when the grass showed some graowth i applied NPK with trace elements.
Yes Munir sn i moved the grass after the pictures.I replaced it with my most favorite Bermuda.This lawn in winter does not receive enough sun light.Bermuda can not tolerate any shade so i replaced it with Korean despite that i never liked Korean.

ICI NPK 20,20,20 with trace elements.Some times i also use only Micro nut plus urea mixed in water & spray it on the lawn grass after watering it.

Portulaca a lovely flower that I grow no more in my house.
I sit in the garden early morning and late evening and it is not there.
Though I have beds of it at my Thokar public garden.
