Any Hayter experts out there?

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 08:08

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!

' I don't mind long answers, but I really hate long questions, and I often just move on to the next after a couple of rambling lines, 'Get tot he point or I walk'. I get enough of those at work, at least I can butt in there though. '

 

Trouble is Jim, we tend to get quite a few posts here where the problem is too subtle or too complicated for a two-line question. Then we have to post back to find out the details of the problem before we can offer useful advice.

Daffodils in pots

I fear that your final sentence is the answer! The daffs will flower when they usually do, depending on species/variety.
