Dad mows Union Flag on Lawn

Grass Clippings - Union Flag LawnA green-fingered dad has created possibly Britain’s smartest front lawn – in the middle of suburbia. 

Keith Smith, 40, has laboured for three years to make his garden immaculate and has even mowed the Union Flag into it.

The part-time groundsman at Aston Villa has created such a perfect lawn at his home in Birmingham that passers-by repeatedly stop and stroke it just to make sure it is real.

It is meticulously mowed to a height of 5mm for two hours every day in summer and has won him a top four and top six finish in an international lawn competition. 

Keith is so protective of his lawn he does not let any of his family members on it.
The lawn mowed as a Union Flag in August 2017 by Keith Smith, 40. It gained him second place in the 2017 Allett International Creative Lawn Stripes Competition
