Hospice Garden Design


We've been busy this year creating garden designs for landscapers who are working mainly on domestic projects, so it was a treat to be asked to design a sensory garden for Tapping House Hospice in Norfolk.

The space at the moment is…

Recommendations for Petrol Grass Strimmers

Hi all.I recently purchased a Trueshopping grass strimmer. As caretaker of a school, I have some quite large areas of weeds and nettles etc to keep at bay. I assembled the unit, which took quite a while and then attempted to start it. Well, it did even want to fire up at all. After further investigation I discovered that the sparkplug was not even remotely tight within its housing. Even more alarming was the poor design of the spark plug cover and lead connection. The spring into which the…

Which Stihl Brushcutter Blade ?

Once in a while I need to cut wild clumpy grass with meter high nettles & bindweed.  It's often wet.  What's the best Stihl blade for this ?  I don't think the shedding blade would work as it has downturned ends that might catch on stones etc.  I was going to get the standard 4 lobed blade but Stihl say this is for long dry grass.

Pond pump query

My Oase 6000 pump has stopped working. It has given many years of service, so I don't blame it!Whilst investigating the problem, I discovered that my multimeter was reading approx 280v. It was showing 249v on other items fed from the same source. Is it perhaps picking up a reading from the pump's capacitor or does the high reading simply indicate an internal fault in the pump?

4-12-12 Lawn Feed. Ok for pots and borders?

Client is fed up of wasting fertiliser on a lawn that may be dug up in the future. Would some bags of 4-12-12 lawn fertiliser by a brand I'm sure most of you are are familiar with be suitable for use as a top dressing for pots and borders? Of course a weed and feed would not  be suitable, but am I right I'm saying that this 4-12-12 is probably identical to something sold as a granular  feed?Thanks in advance

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
