I've got this http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb428gdo-32cm-1300w-lawn-scarifier-230v/48162 


it has a rake (tines on a rotating cylinder) and scarifier (blades on a rotating cylinder) which cuts slits in the lawn.  You can adjust the depth of the slits.

No, it's not Gary - he's on a pedal cycle   think he's in South America at the moment.  But your article is interesting  - good for him. 


We've got soft steady rain at the moment - no storm so far. 

Raising height of standard (lollipop) topiary

Just regular clipping with some topiary shears will keep the balls dense and nicely shaped. 


The more frequently you clip during the growing season, the better the balls will be.

It was 32C again yesterday.


This morning it's already 19C and soft but steady rain has just started - the lawn is drinking it in

We need to know more about you and your fence - height, length, which way does it face, what sort of soil do you have, what sort of effect are you after, that sort of thing.
