 Post subject: Is Ammonium Sulphamate really gold?
PostPosted: Sun May 13, 2018 10:00 pm 
No, not joking I got 5kg on ebay for £30 I now need more, same seller has it for £100 :shock:

Looked elsewhere and its either out of stock or not equally high priced (and out of stock)


Or is there anything else I can use to kill lots of weeds?

 Post subject: Preparing ground for new lawn/landscape help
PostPosted: Fri May 11, 2018 8:17 pm 
Hi all,

So this year I got sick of looking at the front garden and decided I'm going to try and lay a new lawn, and possibly some plants etc.

When we moved in last year it seems there was a drive underneath and the previous tennants laid tarpaulin over this and some top soil. As you can imagine it didn't end too well. We dug this all up and removed the material only to ...

 Post subject: Preventing Grass between Slabs
PostPosted: Sat May 05, 2018 6:46 pm 
I've just spent the afternoon digging out grass between the slabs in the garden. It's left deep gaps between the slabs. Anyone know what's best to use to stop the grass growing back again?
Many thanks

 Post subject: Mountfield HP185 (Briggs Stratton engine) surging/hunting?
PostPosted: Sat May 05, 2018 5:29 pm 
My Mountfield HP185's engine is surging when running, it's one of the ones with a plastic carb which has no adjustment screws on it at all anywhere.

Things I've done so far:

Stripped and cleaned carb
Put fresh fuel in
Cleaned Air filter
Gapped spark plug
Reset governor position (as per Briggs & Stratton instructions online)

When running I can see the governor arm constantly moving back and fourth which is causing the carb to ...

 Post subject: Holly tree stump...............
PostPosted: Mon Apr 23, 2018 5:16 pm 
I have just cut down a small (9ft) holly tree in my garden as it is sitting directly next to a manhole and above my clay drain pipe.
All thats left is a 2ft stump, and I want to stop it sprouting again, and ideally get rid of whats left.
I don't want to try to dig it out for fear of damaging the pipes so what would you suggest is a good approach - ...

 Post subject: Garden waste incinerators?
PostPosted: Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:24 am 
Anyone had, got or used one?
If so then what can you tell me - I am about to cut down a couple of small trees and am hoping to get an incinerator to burn as much of the small stuff as possible as the alternative is a dozen trips to the tip.
Given that the trees are alive the wood will be very green, so will the smaller branches burn along with the twigs? ...

 Post subject: Grass seed and freezing conditions
PostPosted: Sat Mar 24, 2018 9:21 pm 

Looking for some help. I have just put down new seed on my lawn after hollow tining and spreading soil to solve dips in the lawn. I had checked the weather before doing this and it stated that temperatures would be around 10 - 13 degrees for the next 2 weeks (I think this is the temperature it needs to be for the seeds to germinate? I have now checked the weather after the ...
