Mowing the lawns in York Minster

Grassclippings - York MinsterIt is not often that you hear the sound of lawn mowers coming from within the great wall of the fabulous York Minster!

That's exactly what happened back in June for a fund-raising event.

Turf Grower and Supplier, Lindum Turf rolled out over 1,500 sqm of their Wow! Grass! a soil-less turf grown on felt made from recycled textiles across the 14th centrry nave where 900 people were due to be entertained in return for some financial assistance to the Minster coffers to help preserve and restore the building for future generations to enjoy.

The turf was not down for long.  A service after the dinner meant that the 'lawn' had to be rolled up and be out the next day.  The hardest task was trimming the turf around the columns. The turf company has also managed Wow! Grass! concepts at Trafalgar Square and The Dorchester Hotel.
