ground water coming up through paving

I'm quoting to replace a patio. With all the winter wet there hs appeared a 'spring' at the foot of some steps, the area is cut into quite a long slope. Is the answer to lay some sort of permeable pipe along the foot of the retaining wall either below the paving or in a narow gravel ditch? if so what's the right sort of pipe to use and is it best to lay and point with mortar or lay on sand (butt joined).All advice gratefully recieved!

Killing crocus bulbs

....so we are redoing a garden for the new owners. There is an area about 30' x 80' that was a flower bed. The new owners want it to be a lawn...all fine so far.I wanted to get it prepared and the turf down nowish, but the ground is so waterlogged i cant get on it to do the prep. However loads of small crocus bulbs have come up. Can I successfully use Roundup on them?, Or am i going to have to dig up every individual bulb....ie hundreds?ThanksAdam

Both customers have trees which have thin branches growing upwards that they would like cut back in rder to keep the trees small and in shape. I can see where the previous pruning has taken place. A couple of question:1. Do I cut back just below the previous pruning cut? This would save a considerable amount of work, as branches have grown out from the previous cut. Or, do I cut back…
