Pesticide ban in Brighton

https://www.theargus.co.uk/news/17596269.four-major-parties-support-ban-on-toxic-pesticides-in-brighton/ How is this legal or even possible for a council to ban something that is sold in garden centres and used on farms and food production? It's so frustrating that the hysteria around gylphostate is being used as a political band wagon. Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water with little or no understanding of the issues.

New Mower

Hi, apologies as I know this question comes up quite a lot but I'm looking for recommendations for a mower that can deal with wet or longer grass . I already have the non pro Weibang roller which is good at collecting but weighs a ton, a small Honda roller which I like but collection isn't great but I'm looking for a wheeled mower for the more uneven lawns. My current Toro keeps clogging. I'm looking around the £800 mark. There's so many I'm a bit confused. I was fairly impressed with an Izy I…

Employee breaks a window strimming-who pays?

I've recently come across this dilemma and wondered what people do. An employee broke a window strimming, whilst following instructions to work in an anti-clockwise direction and keep revs low (ie. it was an accident). The employer has said that the employee must pay, rather than claim on his PL  insurance, and it is going to cost around £400. Any comments on what is 'usual practice' greatfully received. This is not me- I am self employed but worked for a contractor for 10 years- but just…

Advice on installing a row of pleached trees level on a slope

Hi, I hope you are all well. I am wanting to plant some pleached trees with their base at the same height as the top of my fence (neighbours fence) but her fence is below the level of my garden, which thus falls at a slope down to the concrete gravel board quite steeply (about 45 degrees) within 300mm of the fence. Our garden also has a slight slope from left to right as well, but her fence is level until the last 5 panels, which are stepped in 2 places. Please see photos attached. My questions…

Mobile data recording

Hi, I am looking at trying to find a system for recording labour time and materials to invoice whilst we are mobile in the vans during the working day, when we do not have an internet connection. It would be ideal not to have to duplicate the information from something like notepad onto an invoice.  I use sliq invoice at the moment and was thinking of using their online version, but I don't think it will work offline.  A simple system is what I am looking for with a low cost.  If a data…
