What base for laying slabs on?

Hi,I've been asked to create a paved area using 600x600 standard slabs. Years ago when I worked on sites they laid them on sand with a sprinkling of dry cement on top, but I'm now seeing guys on YouTube (albeit in United States), laying slabs or pavers on 3/8 to 3/4 inch clean chips. I know some lay pavers on mortar, I'm just looking for advice on what is the best and most effective, cost wise and longevity wise. Many thanks again Neil

Buddleja ( Buddlia ) Super plant of the future ?

Please forgive me for what maybe an obsession, but I have always been fascinated and in awe of the prolific Buddleja ( Buddlia ) bushes / trees that I have a skill for noticing, where they grow in the most inhospitable and bizarre locations, railway bridges, rooftops, chimneys, multi-storey car parks, wasteland and any uncultivated barren horizontal or vertical surfaces, it does not appear to care at all.​​​​​​​How do they survive and thrive with so little water, nutrients and zero care ?This…

Masport mower

Still looking for that elusive relatively light, manoeuvrable roller mower, hence previous post Hayter versus Honda.Looking at the 18inch Masport rotorola at 43kg, comes with a choice of Briggs, loncin or Honda engine at differing prices.Anyone got one? Interested in reliability, no local dealer! Wet pick up, quality of cut- using on high end clients and any other useful info, it's the roller machine not the wheeled.

Oak sleepers

After installing oak sleepers for a client 8 years ago, they have started to rot. They are installed upright  as a small retaining wall. My timber supplier obviously isn't going to want to know after this period, and I'm concerned about the outcome - I could be massively out of pocket potentially for something which isn't technically my fault? Does the client have a case against me?? I want to help, but can't afford what I know they are going to want...

Viking MB545 VR engine

Hi, been trying to source a replacement BS engine for a Viking mower in title.....with no success.I understand from Stihl/Viking that the engine at the time was a 625/675 series, 190cc and around 5.5hp. Cant find an old cheap mower anywhere with that engine. Think it's a Quantum engine.Anyone know if I can down grade the engine to a lesser cc and  HP Briggs engine or will it have a big impact on the performance? Got to such a point now I really don't know what I'm looking for 🤷.

"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."
