PostPosted: Thu Aug 30, 2018 8:22 pm 
To be honest I think I already know the answer to this but worth a try.
I have a customer who is having problems with rabbits in her garden. The garden is surrounded by grazing land and they can be quite clearly seen but have also made inroads into the garden. She's filled in the holes they've dug with rocks but of course they just simply dig elsewhere and have now started to dig up ...

 Post subject: Replacement For Shed
PostPosted: Sat Aug 18, 2018 5:35 pm 
Last week I removed my old shed; 8' by 6' 4" and was planning to replace it with another shed, a Pent 8' by 8'.

Its going in the corner of the back garden behind the garage where we have a flat level concrete area of 12' by 10'.

The local timber company has been promising to supply the shed for over two months now, but other work; e.g. packing for engineering components seems to ...

 Post subject: Prunus foliage shrivelled and dried up
PostPosted: Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:47 pm 
I have a Prunus Royal Burgundy a few years old and planted last autumn. It flowered very well and seemed healthy until the recent heatwave. I watered it along with everything else, but some of the leaves are dried and shrivelled, as in the attached photo. Does anyone know what's wrong and how to treat it? Thanks very much.

PostPosted: Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:29 am 
Hi

I have dug up and area of my garden which I plan to make into a patio/bbq area. I want to plant some Leylandii trees along a section dividing my garden from the neighbours to give a little extra privacy. I can see how many trees to plant over the length, but I can't find how wide to leave the border before laying the paving slabs.

Can anyone give advise or point me to ...

 Post subject: Lawnmower won't start
PostPosted: Sun Aug 05, 2018 6:34 pm 
Anyone got any suggestions why my mower won't start, clean fuel and oil, working fine then just cut out. Occasional puff of black smoke which suggests may be running rich, air filter clean. It's a briggs and stratton 150cc readystart

 Post subject: leaves of purple fastigiate beech are too green
PostPosted: Fri Jul 27, 2018 9:48 am 
Hi. I have just received some Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Purple' trees, otherwise known as purple fastigiate beech. As you can see from the photo, they are 1.5 to 2 metres tall. I think they are 2-3 years old. The problem is that the leaves, apart from one or two, are green. I'd be grateful for any comments as to whether they really are purple beech and when I can expect them to turn purple. It's ...

 Post subject: Guttering
PostPosted: Wed Jul 25, 2018 6:53 am 
I have tried instaling a water but,i have put guttering on the shed but there is a gap between the roof of the shed and guttering,so the rain runs off the roof through the gap missing the guttering.
the guttering is lower than the roof so i need to attach something between the roof and the guttering i have temporary put duct tape.
what would be the best solution .

thanks
rich

 Post subject: Artificial Grass
PostPosted: Sun Jul 22, 2018 11:12 am 
Anyone on here ever laid this?
Reason I ask is that is it for the average diy(er) or pros only, does the garden have to be absolutely spot on level etc etc.
Thought we had agreed on putting a decking in the garden then son says “why don’t you put artificial grass down instead” :wtf: :cb now ...

 Post subject: How to level these patio stones?
PostPosted: Sat Jul 21, 2018 3:58 pm 
See photo.

My mum wants me level this off basically and make good.

She reckons I can just lift all the stones, rake the ground level underneath and replace the stones.
But I think its not that easy and will not stay level either.

She doesnt need a pro finish but I am not sure how best to do this in the 6 hours or so I will have. I don't fancy making cement etc. ...
