Equipment stolen

I had my crewcab with rear shutter type doors broken into last night.  While i was having my tea. They took a mitox sp hand held blower, stihl km94 with hl145 trimmer, edger, chainsaw and strimmer attachments. My dash cam was taken as well. Lucky I disturbed the bastards I did chase a guy but he was off like a flash into the waiting car. I was lucky only to loose that as my honda mower strimmer and a hedge trimmer were on the back of the pick up. I've had my fuel cans also taken and makita…

Chippers

Hi all, anybody had much experience with getting a chipper into a garden with virtually no access?!! Only way in is either through the front door, meandering through the house then up really steep steps or up a footpath then lowering it over a wall!  Problem is it's going to be a huge pile of waste to deal with so will take days with an electric hobby type machine but it seems even a small petrol chipper is damn heavy!  Just wondering if anyone may know of a high output electric or maybe a…

TV programmes..

So I got asked to do some work with a TV show, 'Garden Rescue' that were to be filming locally to me. They wanted me to put in 20m2 grey sandstone patio in a day, not a massive area bearing in mind prep work was to be done by someone else and in all likelihood probably not going to be done until at least late morning. I provisionally said ok even though im currently in the middle of a large contract, erring on the side of caution and expressing my concerns about it being done as quick as that,…

Buying pesticides

I find it both annoying and frustrating that I have to, quite rightly, do at least two courses and tests to apply pesticides anywhere but a supplier just has to get a customer to agree, with no proof, that they are qualified to apply pesticide and they send the order out. Why do they not need proof of a PA1/6 before sending the order it's basic common sence. The reason for my rant. I saw a guy spraying a petrol station today in shorts no PPE and it was raining every other hour. I cannot believe…

Pre Emergent - Granular

We look after an over 50's complex with a good run of planted borders.  This is our first year, and we've spent alot of time weeding, we think we can put some of that time to better use. We've been invited to quote to come back next year, always a good sign, and I've been thinking about the annual weed situation. Chemical spraying has been all but outlawed as the residents don't like the idea of spraying on plant beds, so I am looking for an alternative solution. I've come across granular pre…
