HIPPO LAWN: Growing a lawn for grazing animals
This month saw the beginnings of nurturing grass nurseries, to eventually grass over the entire Hippo Lawn. We planted both river grass and more conventional, hardy lawn grass. What we really need though, is Star Grass, for attracting the Buffalo. It has self-seeded all over the place in our balcony flowerbeds, so hopefully will do the same on the Hippo Lawn.
November brought the rain, and we expected great changes to the Hippo Lawn...
After several weeks of good rain, our Hippo Lawn in January is a far cry from the bare ground we had in October...
