Pre Emergent - Granular

We look after an over 50's complex with a good run of planted borders.  This is our first year, and we've spent alot of time weeding, we think we can put some of that time to better use. We've been invited to quote to come back next year, always a good sign, and I've been thinking about the annual weed situation. Chemical spraying has been all but outlawed as the residents don't like the idea of spraying on plant beds, so I am looking for an alternative solution. I've come across granular pre…

Best ladders/tripods/ step for cutting high hedges and trees.

I have recently had a spate of tall hedges and medium sized trees to cut and was using a regular set of ladders with my stihl extendable trimmer. The issue with this was that the ladders were not very comfortable and I was off balance whilst trimming especially with such a long pole.What does everyone reccommend for cutting tall hedges and  for example conifers such as Leylandii that can grow up to 20 foot or more.Are tripods suitable?TIA.

Could your van be held to ransom because of this loophole in the new MOT rules?

Interesting (and likely ?) take on the new MOT by our friends at Simply Business. Also, having just had two vans MOT’d under the new rules it makes you cringe when they do newer emissions check while on the ramp :( ......   “In April, we reported on new rules that could lead to a £2,500 fine for driving your van – even if your MOT’s still in date. What are the new rules? Before 20 May, if your van was roadworthy and its previous MOT was in date, you could still drive it after failing a new…
