budget scarifier

We are looking to buy a scarifier for occasional use, wondered if any one has recommendations? Tool Station have an Einhell GC-SC 2240P on offer at £250 inc VAT, has anyone any experience of these ? The amount we have to do does not justify a professional grade machine, we want the convenience of owning rather than hiring, also seen a Feider FST 212 anyone used these? Any suggestions for a reliable budget machine gratefully received.

How could I use sleepers in this garden? Looking for design ideas

Garden: Morning all, I have 16 new timber sleepers left over from a project and would like to use them in this garden. The sleepers are 200mm x 100mm x 2.4m. The garden is roughly 36 square metres. The garden slopes down towards the house slightly, the rise is around 1 ft. I am going to transfer the existing plants into pots and re-use them, so it will basically be a blank canvas. I am installing a new fence this week and then I'm hoping to start the sleeper work…

Pressure washing detergents

Hi all,just wondering what people's thoughts and experiences are on pressure washing driveways/decking and paved areas.  I have a large power washing job starting next month and am wondering if there is a decent detergent available that can be sprayed on 5 or 10 minutes before starting washing to just make the job easier, obviously a detergent which isn't going to damage or stain paving or decking! Or maybe better to not use any product at all? Any comments greatfully received! Ben

Battery Powered Strimmer, Husqvarna or Stihl...?

Morning AllI'm sure this topic has been covered before, but just wanted some upto date experience re the following. I'm looking at getting a battery powered strimmer and I'm undecied between the Husqvarna 520i LX or Stihl FSA 85. This will be the first battery powered machine I will have, so want to stick to one brand, for ease & cost of batteries. It will only be used for general tidy up of lawns, so no heavy work. Looking in the brochure the Husky seems to have the better run times between…

Planting best practices

Hi all,hope your all well after the adverse weather we've had?. Ive a question im looking for some feedback on, which is 'what is the best practice for planting'. The actual issue is landscapers putting down eco matting after planting. I don't see an issue with this, in fact its actually neater as it doesn't leave soil residue on the matting after planting and plants are backfield much better. Landscape architect has not specified either way, however an over enthusiastic contracts manager has…

"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."
