There is no preventative, but if you get them in your lawn treat the lawn with nematodes specifically for leatherjackets.  Totally safe for dog and wildlife (except leatherjackets)

Info here https://www.rhs.org.uk/Advice/profile?pid=651

You can buy them online.

I wouldn't - it'll look horrid

I'd rather remove it and plant something more suitable for the spot.

Just popping in on OH's laptop while he washes up

Lesley ((hugs)) hope all is ok.

Topbird, if you're going to Southwold, can you pop in on my Aged Ps for 5 mins - just tell Ma you're a long lost relative and give Pa a wink and talk to  him about WW2 aeroplanes - you'll make his day! 

Better have a look around ...
