Can I use any leaves for leaf mould?

You should always get the permission of the owner.

The longer you leave it, the more nutrients will return to the soil, which is not what you want. So strim or mow it now and rake off all the dead matter for composting.

Betti,

I thought this might be the case and it's not a problem in casual contexts, but for formal purposes it is always better to have your work checked by a friend or a professional to get it 100% correct.

By the way, I've never needed to shake a tree, so the survey isn't relevant to me. But good luck with the project!

Betti,

The first rule of being taken seriously, particularly when asking people for help or money, is to proofread your work. Sorry if that seems a little hard, but careless work finds the quickest way to the waste bin. I was Mr Unpopular with all three of our kids, but by their final years at Uni they could all do a presentable essay.

Colin, we can only judge the value of your investment if you tell us how much they cost - everything included

Anyone know what this is please?

Perhaps Charley will give us some diagnostic features?

Petrol Lawnmower any suggestion.

After many years experience of various mowers, I would need a lot of persuading to look beyond a Honda.

Anyone know what this is please?

Perhaps it's an Aeonium - broad, rounded leaves rather than smaller pointy ones.

HD, I don't think the machine you want exists! It's either got to be tough enough to do the job or else made of cardboard so you can lift it over your head. I'm not touting for business, but it sounds to me as though you should stay safely on the ground and get a gardener in to do the job. I'm sure you don't need to cut this hedge more than once a year.
