Just laid a new lawn and  need some advice. How long to wait before mowing?  How long before we can walk on it? Can put autumn feed on it this year or not? Any aftercare advice would be great.

Screened top soil is it good quality soil or not?  Need good soil due to plot having clay soil.

Hi

Grown quite a few standard straight stem bay trees over the years but would like to try a spiral and twisted stem.

Can anyone advice me the best way to train the stems to get the best look.

Any tips will be great thanks.

Help

Just purchased a small piece of land by my house. Been digging the over grown grass and weeds out but as quick as I'm clearing an area the weeds are shooting up again.  What is the best way to get rid of them and not damage the soil?

Hi Everyone

Brought a piece of land to make my garden bigger.The problem I have now is that we have come to turn the soil over and its got bricks which have been dumped by the builders. We have been doing it with a garden fork but its back breaking. Is there an easier way to complete this job. (Can't get a mini digger to the land area)Would a Rotavator be OK with the bricks or have the bricks got to come out first?

Thanks for the feedback.
Do you recommend adding grit to the mix to prevent a waterlogged lawn?

The plot is going to have a pond area, lawn, patio and borders. Any advice will be great to get the most out of this piece of land.
