Client changes mind about paving choice

Hi, I have a landscaper who is laying a patio for a client, he had spent a whole day laying, and had got a good 12 metres or so down. That evening he got a text from the client saying that they didn't like the colour variation of the stones, almost hinting that the landscaper had used a different stone.  My landscaper has sent me a screenshot of the conversation he had with the client, including the stock photo of the stone he sent to him, with the enthusiastic thumbs up message he got in…

ground water coming up through paving

I'm quoting to replace a patio. With all the winter wet there hs appeared a 'spring' at the foot of some steps, the area is cut into quite a long slope. Is the answer to lay some sort of permeable pipe along the foot of the retaining wall either below the paving or in a narow gravel ditch? if so what's the right sort of pipe to use and is it best to lay and point with mortar or lay on sand (butt joined).All advice gratefully recieved!

Killing crocus bulbs

....so we are redoing a garden for the new owners. There is an area about 30' x 80' that was a flower bed. The new owners want it to be a lawn...all fine so far.I wanted to get it prepared and the turf down nowish, but the ground is so waterlogged i cant get on it to do the prep. However loads of small crocus bulbs have come up. Can I successfully use Roundup on them?, Or am i going to have to dig up every individual bulb....ie hundreds?ThanksAdam

Grass cutting business.

Hi there chaps, I've been reading the forums for a while now and I would love some advice please? I'd like to start a grass cutting service and maybe in the future if the business gets bigger window cleaning and hedge trimming. It's been a pretty challenging period with losing both my parents within 6 months of each other last year both were young and was hard to take, as challenging as that period was and is I've come to the conclusion that I need to do something for myself and ive started…
