Sue, 45, and husband Noel, 48, from Morecambe, Lancashire, embarked on a massive DIY project earlier this year, transforming their garden. 

The parents, who welcomed baby number 22, Heidie, in April, ditched real grass in favour of artificial lawn, to try and stop their kids from getting muddy in the garden. 

With lush faux turf outside now, Sue revealed she keeps it clean by vacuuming it. 

She shared a story to Instagram, showing herself taking the £600 cordless Dyson for a spin outside as she spruced up the lawn ahead of the scorching heatwave.

Sue said: “Grass hoovered.

“Now to turn this garden into something excited for the kids.”

The parents documented their garden transformation in March, with Noel explaining: “We’ve got a bit of a project on the go.

“We’re changing this from real grass to fake grass just to make it a lot cleaner for the kids.”

Noel used 20 tonnes of hardcore to level out the garden, which was uneven in certain areas.

He was helped out by Sue and their older son Daniel, 20, as well as a few “little helpers.”

The lads worked on the garden for hours, including laying decking and cladding the walls. 

Noel finally downed tools at 8.45pm, saying: “I started about 2 o’clock, I’ve had three of the boys and myself, and Sue shovelling this stuff around and wheelbarrowing that around.”

The new garden went down a treat with the kids, and the fake grass did its job, with Noel adding: “The kids are all playing out today and none of them are mucky or anything they’re all clean.”

Sue added that she had more plans for the garden, adding: “We want to get a projector for the kids so that they can have movie night, with some big bean bags.”
