Hi clogger head,to organise my neighbours to as much clean the their own front path would take a major operation since most don't talk to each other and think it beneath them to do so.So I think I am just going to have to do it myself ....off to get a brush and barrow ,see you .

Can I plant a lawn on heavy clay

It is lovely to see someone taking a pride in the front of their home and giving a lovely display.Today as I walk my area,most front gardens are taking up for brick drive ways and piles of grit and not a flower in sight.(90% )and only a few gardens with flowers.
