Hi Everyone On the Landscape Juice magazine site I like to run regular tips and advice features aimed at assisting beginners and amateurs (and maybe the odd pro) with aspects of their projects. Lawn care has been featured regularly over the last three years as has paving and other garden maintenance tips. At the moment, Claudia, Jill and Jo are writing guest blogs for the site and now I would like to expand this further and feature guest blogs from landscapers and gardeners. If you feel you have something to contribute that others would find of use then please email me. Don't worry if you are less than confident about writing because I can present it for the site. I will need well taken photographs (with titles) to accompany any piece that you contribute. The kind of thing I am looking for, well, little things we take for granted that might seem a big obstacle for the home builder or gardener. A example might be: * How to mark out an accurate curve for brick/patio edging. * How to construct a patio surface on ground that may have had in-fill (using lintels to bridge a soft patch) * How to soften mortar for use or what consistency to use when pointing a patio. I can leave it to you. Those of you who feel creative can send me a something in writing but if you do not feel confident for a full piece then why not leave any tips or advice below and I can collate them into a full piece. Every one who contributes will be attributed with a link.

Waste disposal problems

Anyone else having problems finding somewhere to take their waste at the moment? The two council areas I work under have both stopped garden bin collection and closed the tips. Commercial tips are also closed round here. I've got nowhere to store…
