Remembering Phil Voice

LAST year, on 28 September, the founder of the Landscape Juice Network, Phil Voice, died at his home in France surrounded by his family. A long period of treatment for colon cancer sadly proved unsuccessful although during this time he had continued contributing to the site despite his illness.

He wanted the site to continue to help landscapers develop…

Ego backpack harness with multi tool

Hi all. Have any Ego Power owners on here successfully paired a backpack harness + adapter with their multi tool? I bought a harness yesterday and tried it out with the multi tool, but it stalls every 5 secs until you release the trigger and try again, it also does this with the chainsaw. I've now read the reviews section on Ego's website and it appears I'm not the only one to have the issue. I'm returning it tomorrow as it's really not fit for purpose.Just like to know if anyone else has had…

Autumn Start it worth it?

I'm in the Bromley/west Kent area. But as we come into autumn, would it really be commercially viable to start up now? I would be keen to hear your thoughts on this. Thanks in…

Garden Design Software

I was wondering if anyone has any opinions about garden design software?  Good ones to go for?  Bad ones to avoid?  I am currently drawing freehand but would like to computerise the designs and hope that will make things easier.I have done quite a bit of research, including searching this forum, but have yet to find a balance view on any software!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."
