Do any OGGies have an artificial lawn or do they not appeal to gardeners?

No artificial lawns in our garden, I prefer to see the real thing. A couple of elderly neighbours have replaced their real grass lawns with artificial ones this summer.

we don't have an lawns but I have read that they can pose a possible health problem to adults. We had a lovely surprise last night - after about 3 years- we had a hedgehog in our garden - snuffling about and possibly eating our small frogs. Made our year, we couldn't stop smiling.

No artificial lawns here! emoticon
We now have a regular hedgehog who is quite big. It was interesting to see how our Cavaliers reacted to him/her. emoticon
A few nights ago when we were checking our cameras for hedgie, a bat flew across our patio so I am delighted that perhaps our little wilderness is producing some results! emoticon There used to be quite a number of bats beyond our back garden but this one was right up close.
