Patio paving design tool needed

Posted: 03/04/2013 at 00:47

Does anyone know of any online software that can help design the layout of patio paving? I want to replace my patio using different sized paving stones in a random effect, something like this..

 I'd like a design tool that creates suggested patterns so I can order the correct quantities of paving stones with the least cutting.

Thanks.

By chance I was going through my seed tin today and came accross some Delphinuim seeds given to me by a neighbour in 2008 that I had forgotten about. Who reckons they will be any good? They have been kept dry but im unsure..

Ive never grown Delphiniums before and I fancy sowing some seeds this spring. But im unsure which veriety to buy. Crocus have the Centurian Blue F1 which look nice, but they are £5 for 10 seeds. 

So im after some advice on which Delphiniums people here have grown well from seed?

Steel mesh covering wildlife pond?

My boy is 6 and is quite competent in water, to the point where im happy enough to have the pond, but I don't want to take chances. Glad this thread popped up again as the project has been on hold over winter, but will be going ahead soon.

Tomato Growpots, any good?

Posted: 19/03/2013 at 15:18

Thanks. Mixed opinions then I see. I reckon I'll give them a miss and continue with the bottomless pots & growbag routine.
