Mum left in stitches at husband’s blunder after laying ‘artificial grass’ in garden

One mother says she “didn’t have the heart” to point out her husband’s mistake when he proudly installed the “artificial turf” he picked up in her yard on eBay.

Pauline Tremble and her husband Andy bought the material online after Andy discovered the “bargain” that arrived on their doorstep in Irvine, Scotland, just 12 hours later.

The 54-year-old said: “I don’t have the heart to tell him to lift it, he was so pleased with himself until he saw my face.

“It’s listed as AstroTurf, but it’s not. No grass is as shady or as rough as sandpaper.”

Pauline said Andy is now joking that he plans to turn her yard into a golf putting green, claiming he ordered three holes and some six-foot flags to finish it off.

She said her husband “loves a little bargain,” but he probably had left the company, “jumped around the warehouse and laughed that a mug had finally ordered it,” and shipped it in record time so it couldn’t be canceled.

Pauline shared the funny mix-up on Facebook, writing: “When your husband tells you he’s going to put a little piece of Astro lawn by the front door, he’ll put down a huge, bright green carpet instead.

“Sorry, neighbors, but don’t hesitate to play a game of bowling.”
