On reflection, the grass cutting effect was not distinct enough, though you could see it. I think it was just slightly too subtle. I was worried that this would be the case, but my plans had been stymied by 'Britain in Bloom'. The judging of the Britain in Bloom competition was to take place in the following week, so a committee somewhere in the Council ruled that I was not allowed to do anything more 'drastic' to the grass. Despite the fact that had there been any other kind of event on such as outdoor theatre or music that would have created more severe marks in the grass from stages or seating etc - I was not allowed to affect the grass by creating visual art (in an Arts Centre!).
I think the overall result is likely to have been improved if I had been allowed at least two weeks growth instead of only one. More ideal would be if I had been able to make the grass go yellow. I have learned however, more about planning and dealing with the unexpected. Marks from yellowed grass will have to wait for another opportunity.
