"Another factor is whether regular mulch / drop mowing. This will return around 50% of required nutrients over time, and so you halve the requirements."

If you want do lessen the worm casts then Tiger granules have worked well for us. But only do if the worm casts are a real problem for you; worms are good for the soil so should be left alone where possible."

Spongey grass

Hi, looking for some advice please. Been looking after a lawn for a couple of years now and it has always been spongey underfoot and whilst the lawn has always looked good there’s been no appetite from the customer to tackle this.......however it’s bothering me as the weight of my mower on the spongey turf is meaning the quality of the cut isn’t as food as it could be. see picture - first inch above the soil bed is a the spongey thatch. I scarified at the start of the year but this hadn’t…

secure storage, workshop needed

Please remove if this isnt allowed. After 20 years on the same site we are now losing it to developers. I have 3 20ft shipping containers and parking for van and 2 trailers. We are based on the northern edge of Leeds and are now hunting around for a new site to work from. At the moment I have found nothing despite hunting for three weeks. My question is do any members on this site, who are based near me, have any leads to pass on? Really grateful as we are stumped.

Honda Izy HRG5367

Morning All. I've shredded a rear tyre on my Izy. Hardly surprising really, it has had 3 seasons of being used on all of my rougher type gardens and has been unbelievably good. I've been looking online but can only find wheels (at about £30+VAT), and they appear to also need a height adjusting tool as well, to fit them.  I wondered if anyone knows a supplier who will sell me a couple of tyres for the rear wheels. I'm not being tight but I'll also be renewing the drivebelt, rubber strip plus…

Is it too late to over seed?

Hi all.  I am after a bit of advice on the above. Is the weather still warm enough to over seed at this time of year. I have scarified, aerated with hollow and now am going to top dress and fertilise tomorrow. Would it be OK to over seed as well?   Thanks for the advice in advance. I hope you are all keeping well.   Regards Lee
