Eco Garden Maintenance are glad to announce that we have ordered more pellenc tools that should be with us by the end of the week. We will be receiving the C20 chainsaw and Treelion M45 pruning shears to add to the Helion 75cm hedge trimmer, Excelion strimmer and airion blower that we already use.

These battery powered gardening tools are at the cutting edge of technology offering zero emissions at point of use and vastly reduced noise levels at and around the work area. These bennefits along with reduced weight and the fact that the operator does not have to stop to refuel means increased productivity can be acheived. A happy gardener results in a happy garden !

The Eliet prof 4 hydro shredder we have been using for a few months now has been a huge asset to the company and our customers. Gone are the days of dragging huge amounts of waste out of gardens and to the waste transfer station. We encourage customers to utilise the end product of shredding to either compost or add to the borders as mulch. The organic, wildlife friendly garden relies heavily on compost as a rich source of nutrients, soil conditioner, water retention and food for soil micro-organisms. This can only be good for your garden and help your plants be healthy and free from disease. Why buy expensive compost from garden centres ( who knows how far it has travelled to get to you ) when you can make your own and eliminate disposal costs too.

Another string to our eco bow is the use of organic fertilizers for lawns and other plants. Our aim is to feed the soil which in turn feeds the plant naturally. A healthy soil full of life will bring rewards in terms of reduced pests and diseases - synthetic fertilizers do nothing for the soil which can become stale and void of life.

The future is natural and organic i think you will agree.

Daisy Lacey replied to Daniel Edwards's discussion Filling in a pond
"Yes, that would help. But if the area below the 'patch' is more/less free-draining than the surrounding area it will affect the lawn colour even if it's the same species all the way through. Possibly not immediately but in 2/3 years for sure."

Neal Barker @ Etesia uk replied to Daniel Edwards's discussion Filling in a pond
"As The others have already said with the hardcore etc etc,
 
only thing to add is that would it be possible to seed the area instead of laying turff ?
this would alow you to overseed the rest of the lawn which might help to tie in the areas together…"

"Tricky customers to be sure. I can suggest a 3-way product SB Invigorator which works by a physical mode rather than chemical so its safer for users & edible/ non-edible crops without harming useful predators. Also acts against Powdery Mildew.....

"Thanks!
 
Went yesterday and it's just drying out and they said they were just watering it for about ten minutes.
Ground was watered prior to laying but it's amazing how quickly your hard work can get undone. 
They've had a rollicking and are doing…"

Colin Hunt replied to Andrew Evans's discussion Pond loosing water
"I'm not an expert, but I notice that the waterfalls and header pond have an area that exceeds the surface area of the lower pond by around 5/1. So lets say the whole surface area is around 22 sq.m and lost 10mm a day through evapouration - about nor…"

Colin Hunt replied to John Powley's discussion New turf struggling
"At this time of year, newly laid turf will root within days, providing it has moisture and that means when laid, ie thoroughly wetting the ground BEFORE laying.  For aftercare, very few customers understand that watering means WATERING and think a s…"

Andrew Betteridge replied to Rob's discussion Is it safe to cut near or around posionous plants?
"If the thorn is surrounded by weeping puss you can try sitting in a bath of hot water and flexing your leg to draw it out. If that doesn’t work ask the pharmacist at your local chemist about using some drawing ointment.

Planting courses

Can any recommend home study diplomas for planting design courses? I've been looking at Oxford College of garden design but would be interested if anyone had pointers for me. I've been a gardener for 20 years but feel I want to do a bit of study.
