I am considering adding some bamboo to my garden.Please could you suggest some suitable candidates to look out for.

The area is quite shaded and damp. I am looking for something that is a vibrant green. I am also likely to pair it with ferns due the the conditions, unless anyone has any better suggestions!

Creosote - Which one and the best technique?

Posted: 05/03/2013 at 09:08

Thanks for all the useful help and advice. BrummieBen I like the sound of minutes per panel but I think I will need to go with  hypercharleyfarley method of brush and newspaper, just because there are gaps and I am concerned about the next door neighbours pets, plants etc.

So which one creosote or substitute is best?

Creosote - Which one and the best technique?

Posted: 04/03/2013 at 12:04

Now that the weather is finally improving I am looking to tackle the task of creosoting my fence.

Before doing so I thought it wise to ask if anyone knows the following:

  • Is there a brand that is better and longer lasting than others?
  • Technique:  Brush Vs Spray
  • Is using a spray much quicker, what prepping is required?
  • By using the traditional method of using a brush still the best, in way of finish and protection?


Any help  and suggestions will be gratefully received. Thanks.
