Agree with Nut, could also be leatherjackets ... hard to tell ... but the treatment is the same.

crawling bugs in my soil - is it safe to use?

Can't see them very well, but from a distance they look as if they may be cutworms - they've really enjoyed the conditions you provided them with.  I don't cover soil because it prevents the birds getting rid of the bugs for you - they're not harmful to humans but they may eat some of your plants - I'd just rake the soil over and leave it for a few days - the blackbirds and robins will come and eat them and by the time the weather is suitable for planting the bugs will be gone

Some people are arrogant - they think, 'this can't possibly apply to me' ...  but that's usually the very person they're trying to stop.

Or of course, if you have the image you want on your laptop/tablet etc, then you don't have to Google for a picture.

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Gabions done well are fantastic - I loved the one on Monty's Big Dreams the other evening, with the ferns planted among the stones

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Posted: 12/03/2016 at 08:59

Built a distance away, as alongside a main road with the noise all coming from one direction and where it skirts a housing development, a gabion wall with stone at the surface and a softer/dense material filling the inner will work.  But it is the dense material in the inside of the gabion that absorbs the sound.  The stones are there to provide the structure. 

I feel that when you're dealing with a noise source that is close by, and surrounded by buildings with brick walls which will bounce the sound around, soft surfaces which absorb sound will work better.

I may be wrong but it's what I would do.

This thread has been flagged up to the Mods - they will deal with it when they are in the office. 

May be best left alone now?  Don't want to inflate its importance
