It is hard to imagine that a weed, some advice and cup of tea could lead to expenses in excess of $150. Add Lilo to the scene and it becomes a lot easier.
It all began with a weed - Kikuyu to be precise. In fact it was turbo charged monster Kikuyu which had established itself in the dead centre of the lawn.
A visiting garden handyman saw the patch and being a man of few words advised:

So I did. A long and painstaking job it was.
