Water butts, decking, diverters and overflowing

Posted: 17/03/2014 at 21:20

Your decking will be wet or damp for long periods at certain times of year. The occasional heavy storm won't add significantly to this, so don't worry!

Can't see the pics. The fact that the neighbour is an idiot is irrelevant in considering whether you're making his or his successor's garden unstable.

Any Hayter experts out there?

These aren't big lawns. I'm inclined to say nip down to B and Q (other big sheds are available) and buy a £60 electric mower - light as a feather - and then when it breaks, buy another. I wouldn't go beyond the push model Hayter or perhaps the Honda Izy equivalent at similar price.

The first thing I'd do is talk to the neighbours beyond the fence; you might find they would have some pretty strong feelings about their garden being undermined!

Okay to place water butt against house wall?

I can't see any problem provided the butt is lidded and the system is installed properly and cleaned regularly. Perhaps check that the ground slopes slightly away from the house.

How big is your lawn? Is it smooth and flat?

At £1700 for the 8x6 they need to be good. Get a good wooden one and spend the difference on a good lock. I'd only have one if I could hide it somewhere!
