Is this Britain's most immaculate garden?

8 posts in this topic

Do you want a lawn like this? Well, it’s easy – in theory. You just need to spend 30 hours a week gardening and do it for 30 years!

That’s how long 70-year-old Stuart Grindle has spent turning a former vegetable plot into the picture of perfection it is today.

Mr Grindle mows his lawn six times a week and keeps the grass cut to an impressive 5mm. He was so determined to protect his precious grass that he even banned his son Jonathan from playing football on it when he was a boy.

It's easy to see he's a keen gardener! It's all looking very nice I think, especially the flowers - very colouful.

Well... at least it's a beautiful obsession.

Rather ridiculous in my opinion though, to care so much for grass.

I love my garden... but 30hrs a week to keep on top of it.

Life is way too short.

I don't even have 30 hours a week to sleep!

That's an impressive yard/garden.

It reminds me of my grandparents.

Minus the being British part.

If that's his life's passion then, hey, that's okay. It's a beautiful garden. Nice little water feature, too.

It's a beautiful garden. And hey, he's 70... I'm sure it keeps him in good shape, he can get a lot of enjoyment out of it. Not an all together bad hobby at all and with spectacular results. I applaud him!

I agree with the person who said it's a beautiful obsession. But I'm glad it gives him something productive to do in retirement.
