Brilliant!  The best way to stop other people's cats ****ing in your garden is to get your cat to do it in theirs!!

What to do with Shreded branches

I read somewhere not to use freshly shredded material as mulch, although I can't recall the reason.  That said, I have used it as mulch several times and never noticed any problem.

Bizzare Strange Email

If you ever get an e-mail from a dubious source just delete it.  Don't even think about opening it.  I've actually had e-mails where it has my e-mail address as the sender.

Problem is I have no idea where they come in from.  They seem to sense when somebody is around and stay out of sight.

I have had an idea for a modification to the perspex screen though.  Have the perspex at an angle that the cats can climb onto and attach some kind of spring loading mechanism which will release when pressure is applied.  Wheeeeeeee.  Cat's now in somebody elses garden!!

You're wife clearly knows nothing about DIY.  A roll of Duck tape plus a few cable ties and it will be good as new .

Water scarescow sounds great but impractical for my garden which is 50 metres long.  I'd need 5 each side minimum, plus 2 x 50 metre hoses.

Perspex sounds like a brilliant idea.  I have this wonderful vision of a cat trying to jump onto the top of the wall/fence and smacking its head on something it can't see.

I enjoy Beechgrove and GW.  GW particularly since the change to the 1 hour long version.

I really didn't much like the Charlie Dymock programme.  She and the blokes seemed more determined to outdo each other than to provide a practical garden.

My subscription is done by Direct Debit and I don't recall seeing anything to tell me it was due for renewal.  To be honest, there is so much bumph (the polite version) in the pack that I don't look that closely.  It all just goes straight into recycling.

garden design ideas ?!

What direction are we looking in the picture? North, East, South, West.  It will make a difference.
