Land Overhaul

Posted: 24/02/2015 at 05:45

I would burn the whole area, best you can with a gas burner or the use of a few bales of straw. This will kill off any weeds seeds and clear the area. Once that is done you will be able to see where the perennial weeds (Brambles and others) start to grow. then use a Vitax SBK Brushwood Killer (or similar). 

There is no point rotavating the land until you have removed all the perennial weeds as you will just chop them up and they will come back 10X worse. dig them out by hand or use a weed killer once they start growing. You may need several applications and this will take time.  

It's better to get this sorted now than have brambles growing through your lawn later, when it will be impossible to remove without destroying the lawn.

Hi Megan4.

The numbers came up as Sundays and awarded 100 points instead of 20  Perhaps their site is on the blink. I don't think i will be pointing this fact out to them.

Might try the sherbet later.

I do not think they have Jonesk. I think they have been doing a spring clean and trying to fix a few bugs. Try them again a bit later. 

Problems with GW website

I have the box ticked for no email notification but I am getting loads today.

Still some work to do on the site then.

I am pleased for those that couldn't get their notification before.

It must be a spring clean.

The last blog was 27 November 2014. I presume there has been no new blogs since then. Not sure what the number in ( ) represents. It is probably just a site glitch that will be sorted.

I am getting e-mail notifications and i never used to and i have not changed my settings. 

I think it might be a glitch.

I am thinking of Bill. Not sure exactly where he is over there. Has he been on of late?

" A bitterly cold chill known as the "Siberian Express" has enveloped much of eastern America, sending temperatures plummeting up to 40 degrees below their normal February levels to record lows in at least 100 places. " 

What they get, we tend to get a little after.

I would have had him on the line for hours.

Shameful scam artists, trying it on.

Hope you got a laugh out of it.
