Land Drain Layout

First post, so I'll start by saying hello: Hello!I have been asked to install a land drain under a lawn by a client. I have only previously installed herringbone patterns, but this is often governed by the shape of the land. In this instance however the area is a near rectangle. Which got me thinking, must it be this way?I have only found a single reference to a grid system in a Green Keeping magazine whereas every other article deals exclusively with Herringbone.I have attached two draft…

Efficient turf removal methods

Due to past experience of the unreliability of some  hired turf removal lifting machinery i have decided to estimate to remove 60 square metres of lawn using my preffered method . first cut a line in the turf with a spade and then gently swing  my heavy wide head pick / mattock to ease it up which causes the line of turf to curl up nicely and saves my back , less bending involved . this works great on small areas of turf as the strips of turf are narrow in line with the width of my pick head ,…

Do you find that the leads are more often than not only thinking and researching what they want done, and if more than one professional responds, do you find yourself in a bidding war to get the job.I don't like the idea of paying money to get leads which may well not then employ you anyway.

Electric Vans

Anyone out there running a small electric van for a maintenance business?  I am looking to get a new Kangoo sized vehicle and will probably only clock up 5k per year so an electric appeals. However, the premium for electric over a Euro 6 seems too high still. The cost savings for running will soon be eroded by the government protecting existing revenue from vehicles as electric become mainstream. Any thoughts?

"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."
