well... i saw the boss... told him my concerns and and thoughts and how it happened to my lawn.. asked htem about other clients who complained the same too.. and after a rather heated discussion.. they have given me the rest of this years treatments free of charge and 50% off next year.. and will replace any lawn that does not grow back properly..

what a result.. thou they are still not omitting responsibility for the damage but are giving me this as a sign of good will..  that kinda of response is actually omitting it to me.. but i am happy with that result..just wish i could find out all the others and ge them to go for it..

@mattbeer87.. good grief..  they do themselves in the most awkward places dont they maybe be better off with an axe if you can get your hands on one.. easier to use when trying to chop in a confined area.. .. concrete is a pain.. all way down our one side we have large lumps of it from neighbours fences.. when they replace they just put post on the inside of one and never dig them out.. we have lost 2 ft all down oneside when we put our patio wall up to avoid the damn things.. do annoying.. we did break sum up with a sledge hammer but damned hard going.

just keep at it.. you will get the blighter out soon..
