Invasive grass around pond margin

Posted: 18/10/2016 at 20:29

Can you strim some of it down, perhaps just on one side where you get the view from the house so you can see the pond, leaving the grass at the back for the natural look? Then maybe regularly mow the areas you have cut back to suppress it?

New GW...??

Whilst I'm enjoying the hour long episodes I'm finding that I fast forward through most of it. Im not keen on the urban garden parts, or where they visit other peoples gardens. I do however love watching Monty working in his garden. I could easily watch a full hour of Monty doing what he does.

Labrador rescues

Since I last posted we took in Max, an old and unwanted boy, despite being lovable and friendly. His owners change of circumstances meant they couldnt keep him any longer, He did find a new home a few weeks later..



And then we had Rolo, a lovely young chocolate lab who had been kept kennelled in his garden and ignored. He was an absolute beauty and we really wanted to keep him, but the timing wasn't right for us. Thankfully he found a new home with a family who already had a labrador to keep him company...



Then, the other day we took in Alfie, a 3yr old black lab, His owner no longer wanted him and was about to dump him in the street, but thankfully he was able to be saved. My wife travelled long distance to go and save him. Our circumstances have changed at home and I'm pleased to say that we are able to keep Alfie for ourselves. He's laps up attention and company, and is extremely friendly. He's a little underweight but we will be correcting that...

It can be quite hard, but at least when they go it means they have found a nice home.


We never know how long we will be having them for as we are just a foster home for a labrador rehoming charity, we look after them until a home is found, or until they reach their specified foster home.


My wife is a volunteer for them and I can come home one day and find she's collected a dog at short notice. I can come home another day and find the dog gone as the charity has found it a home. Usually we have a bit of notice though.


Theres a network of volunteers around the country and they help each other out looking after the dogs, and relaying them around the country to a foster home such as ours or to their new home.
