There's another thread going about shed/greenhouse bases.

How big is the shed, Steve?

Hedge problem

Well done! The public who use the pavement will be delighted. Hedges that grow into the public space are a disgrace. Owners should get ASBOs.

Properly tantalised timber is good for a long time.

Grass Seed - Mould?

Some seeds are coated so you can see more easily how evenly you're sowing it. I'd go along with the 'nothing to lose' opinions above.

Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

Posted: 02/09/2014 at 20:29

I think we should kill one myth now: there is a convention that you put the posts of your fence on your side of it (in other words, out of goodwill, you show the neighbour the 'best' side) but this is only a convention and doesn't denote legal ownership and responsibility for the fence. The only way to find out ownership of the fence is to look at the property deeds or, failing that, further investigation by a solicitor.

Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

If the original fence has been properly tanalised you would not necessarily want to stain it (and you would be lucky to match the extra fencing) and you would expect the additional fencing to be the same colour if you ordered it to match. Do as others have said and go back to the builders in the strongest terms and demand  replacement. They will play you, hoping to get away with it. It's a complete mess as it is.
