About Paul Jackson Landscaping & Fencing

Welcome to my profile and my first LJN blog! 

I am very happy to become a Landscape Juice Network member, and very pleased to spread the word about my services.

It's been a fantastic last few years, and the business has grown very productively. 

I am always constantly learning, but I have now installed so many hundreds different types of bespoke fencing and gates, I am confident enough to take on anything! Obviously the most popular to replace fence panels is the featheredge, but it's nice to have the occasional change and opportunity to install some hit & miss or picket fencing. 

I've always believed in one philosophy, if it's not good enough for my own garden, it's not good enough for the customer. I believe this is the reason behind the fantastic word of mouth recognition I have achieved. Having worked for a couple of local companies and seeing their tactics to get a job done, I soon lost faith in my pride for a good job and the reason why I went on my own. Now the only time I have to deal with it is when I see that type of work, and when reputable companies like myself have to put it right (not that it doesn't frustrate me hugely).

Using local suppliers and good quality timber also helps with the final finish of our fences.

Please do visit my website below, I am always open to suggestions and constructive feedback where needed.

"Isn't it easier to just delay the planting, let the weeds grow and then spray the lot with Roundup?"

"yes -- and it looks as if jute doesnt have the strength to stop some weeds 'breaking through' -- they advise a total erradication of weeds prior to laying which kinda seems to destroy the point."

"I’m not clued up on the weed barrier but some I’ve seen you can see light through it so I’m sure weeds will grow any way so check that by holding it up to the light"

Russ Francis replied to Darren Walters's discussion Keeping up with doing quotes
"I know the feeling Darren, I have a similar problem following up with doing quotes if I leave them until after the site visit.  Never find time to get them done !  I find it better to give a price on the spot when I can, and then you can tell from t…"

Neal Barker @ Etesia uk replied to Anthony Toop's discussion Etesia pro46 belt change
"Good Points there Chris,
just remember when using copper slip on crank shafts to apply it to the inside of the pulley / blade break systems etc and ensure the slip reaches no further than needed, copper slip will wear out the oil / grease seal of an…"

"I use a Stiga Twinclip 55 (the 3 in 1) and it mulches as good as any dedicated mulcher I've ever used. I highly rate them."

Angela Sharp replied to Oliver clarkson's discussion Apple tree repair
" Shame about this one, but most apple trees which you can expect a crop from can be quite young so it's certainly worth replanting and starting again. If the client invests in a reasonable size tree it'll be cropping in no time. "
