"OK to cut and keep leaves off. You just need to minimise use - not exclude all of it. So no kids playing footy etc"

"Hi guys. Sorry to be best, would it be OK to cut the grass as it is getting rather long. If I wait 6-8 weeks in this weather it will be tall grass. 
Would like to get leaves off the lawn as well. 
 
Thanks all. 
 
Cheers Lee"

"200kg per ha a year equates to 20g per m2, I assume this is just N we are talking about? 4 treatments of that a year mean each treatment should be an average of 5g/m2 max, or 4x14% N content treatments a year of 30g/m2 feed. This seems a lot to me,…"

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

Black Limestone Nightmare

  Hi,   I’ve been looking online for the last few weeks trying to find a solution to a problem I’ve had with a Black Limestone patio.   I run a small one man Landscaping company in Bedfordshire, I’ve recently laid a black Limestone patio approx.35m2..this has been my first Black Limestone patio to be laid, I’ve laid plenty of sandstone and honey coloured limestone but never black.   I’m fully aware it needs treating with kid gloves as it is easy to stain with cement whilst laying and its a big…

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
