New Garden Design Academy Facebook page

Amid huge excitement the Garden Design Academy has just launched its new Facebook page. We have taken the same approach to Facebook as we did with our web site. First sign up and put something on line; learn how it works and what we could do with it. In the light of this experience improve the site, and then improve it some more. The result is this Welcome page which can be found at http://www.facebook.com/GardenDesignAcademy

We believe it helps us to look much more professional and hope everyone will “like” it enough to visit the Academy web site. Comments to help us improve it further will be appreciated; our son, a qualified web site wizard, has already made a few suggestions which we have incorporated in this version. My wife corrected my spelling!

Observant readers will note that to celebrate the new page we have launched a new feature: Offer of the Month, an opportunity to give lots of money away and promote some of our latest courses. I believe “Managing Notable Gardens” is going to be very popular with the parks and recreation industry so this offer should please a few people.

I would be interested to hear what other Landscape Juice members are doing on Facebook.

"We run a small fleet ofvEtesia Pro46's with both Honda and Kawasaki engines.
We prefer the Kawasaki engined variant as it has an "all day fuel tank" and a slightly more powerful engine (6hp vs 5.5hp). The only trade off is that it is slightly heavie…"

As Blue Monday is fast approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to give a small reminder to our community here on Landscape Juice to remember to tell people about your worries and if you’re having negative thoughts. Talking about emotions is o…

Best Gardens replied to John F's discussion Turf Cutters
"We use hired turf cutters regularly and couldn't imagine lifting old turf any other way before re-turfing, it's certainly a real time saver - no reliability issues for us, but as has been said just don't set the blade too deep, you can always run ov…"

Dave Colton replied to John F's discussion Turf Cutters
"I think the problem with them is people not using tcorrectly and trying to to use them too deep and too quickly. I have never had a problem with reliability with the one I hire and it's always done the job and saved a lot of time for the hire cost i…"

Dan Frazer Gardening replied to James Boardman's discussion Tripod ladder size
"The highest platform on henchman tripods when extended is 2ft below the ladder spec. 6ft on the 8ft ladder. The legs extend 18" but they're at an angle so you gain 12" height roughly. 
The tripods fit in so many awkward corners, and really, standing…"

PGM replied to James Boardman's discussion Tripod ladder size
"Great thread, very useful. Have a question about these ladders. So on the Henchman website it says regarding the 8' ladder that the maximum safe standing height is only 5' which doesn't seem very high to me. My question is that if you have the 3 ext…"

"Hi,
Just as a follow up I used the 8ft henchman on a job today and it was briliant, adjustable feet used lots on a slope and the platform at the top feels very secure. In case anyone else is interested I have attached photos of the 8ft on the roof o…"

"true. another design weibang stole from hayter. hayter have since changed the drive system on the new harriers which started from the 41,s snd now 48/56's and the prostripe 560. Much stronger system and very little to go wrong"

"Agreed - the Hayter and Weibang have a ratchet freewheel inside the roller allowing them the tow halves to rotate (or counter rotate) independently. The KAAZ and variants don't due to the way the roller drives from the middle not allowing it to have…"
